WEEK 22. Sensory tubs.



The interest of the kids is overwhelming.


They create their own sensory tubs by themselves.


...even in a weding.

Our week activity consists on playing with sensory tubs.


Fill a box with sand and treasures (chocolatecoins and glass stones).


Cover with sand and make an attractive scene.


It is more fun to find first treasures with friends.


Then happens what happens...


It is very interenting for the little ones.

Mineralizate baby. Teas, a healthy alternative.



Teas can extract  main therapeutic and healthy assets from  plants. You can sweeten them with sugar or honey (honey contains vitamins, enzymes, organic acids, minerals and hormone-like substances with effects like antiseptic). Infusions can also be  a nice drink and are a feast for the senses.

Teas for children over 3 years:
- Rooibos. Taken alone or mixed with milk or juice. It tastes sweet and aromatic. You can take it cold as an alternative to soft drinks. It covers part of the daily requirements of calcium, magnesium and fluoride essential for bones and teeth.
- Chamomile. It is advisable after meals and advisable to reduce colic. It is mildly sedative and stimulates digestion.
- Lavender. It is done with the plant (not essential oil) and it is used for children over three years to sleep more quietly and without interruption.
- Malva flower infusion is used to soothe and soften the throat or bronchial colds, reduce the mucus, sore throat and all sorts of respiratory ailments.
- Melisa. Toddlers that sometimes uneasy when they are really tired, can be calmed by a Melisa bath.
I invite you to buy a box of bags of some of the teas listed above and staple the followings tags.
Download here.


Kids really like the adult´s rituals. You can start with the classic bags or containers that they can fill with herbs, while you controll the temperature of the water.
You can also fill a jar and put it in the fridge now that summer has just begun.

WEEK 21. Taste activities.



Dani had to take to school products to practice taste. So we made ​​a giant tongue and Dani placed on it the different areas where flavors are detected. We also brought a basket with a product of each taste type to be placed on the giant tongue: Salty-chips, Bitter-chocolate 85%, Sweet-peach jam, Acid-lemon and pickled onions.


The book "Train your mind to be a genius" suggests three interesting activities on the subject:
1.-Tasting food with stuffy nose and then uncovered. Children learn the importance of smell in taste.
2.-Test different flavored jellies blind folded and try to identify them.
3.- Dry tongue with a tissue and try to taste something. Do the same without removing saliva. They learn that substances should be dissolved in saliva to be tasted.

Dani´s birthday party. Rainbow theme.


Once upon a time, a rainbow party to which were invited many children. Garlands were made of small pieces of fabric and toys ... Theyr were also used to hang swimsuits.


In the morning, it started raining and raining. It seemed it would never end. Even tissue pom poms turned this way although they were under an umbrella. How to make pompoms, click here.


We had to advise about dangers. To see templates click here, here and here.

But finally guests came and we did a beautiful human rainbow.


The snack was available to children and they could eat what they wanted when they wanted.


Ikea tables with paper tablecloths sewn and drawn.


There was a table with an odd colorful tablecloth and sweets over it.
