The Showcase is a place to link up child centered blog posts. It’s full of fun ideas and lots of inspiration for activities to do with your children, I just wish I could do all of them! It was started by Bern at Mum to Two Posh lil Divas and Classified: Mom.

The Sunday Showcase is now being hosted on SIX blogs!

So without further ado here are my features for the Sunday Showcase. Yay!

The Showcase Features

Taken from last week’s posts

Young children love sensory play – the messier the better. This week I’m featuring six brilliant ideas so the messiest, muddiest, stickiest play you can imagine. Kids will love it and as it is contained in a plastic tub really how messy can you get? Then again, have you met my twins?

6 sensory play activities

 Dirt and Mud Sensory Box from Slugs and Snails and Puppy Dogs Tails

Oh yes, toddlers love mud – and this one gets even better with the added ingredient of glitter.

Gardening Sensory Play from Little Moments a guest post on JDaniel4’s Mom

I’m not the best gardener so this idea is brilliant – all the fun of gardening without any of the expertise.

Cooking Play from Paint on the ceiling

This is so pretty – who would have thought you could say that about mud? A kitchen full of mud pies with added flowers – you can’t beat it.

Dinosaur Small World from Making Boys Men

Most children love dinosaurs. So why not add a few dinosaurs to your muddy sensory play box? There is also a fun spaghetti painting activity on this log so have a look at that for more sensory fun.

Coloured Ice and goop from Creative Playhouse

If you want to move away from mud then this beautiful swirling goop looks a lovely sensory experience.

Bloop from Sugar snip

Finally this post shows that sometimes it doesn’t matter if things go wrong. Here is Bloop – Blue goop made when a recipe went wrong, but it looks equally good fun!

This week on Here Come the Girls
