Garden Sounds Poem:
There's something in my garden! [point to garden]
Now, what can it be? [shrug shoulders]
There's something in my garden that I cannot see. [waggle finger for "no" and/or shake head]
If you listen carefully you will hear a sound [cup hand behind ear]...[Draw animal unseen and make sound]
Wow! A [name of animal] is what I found! [Continue until bored or out of animals.].
Homemade stress balls are SUPER SIMPLE to make at home. You can use flour, rice, water beads, play dough, and even oobleck as a filler inside the balloon.
In order to get the flour inside the balloon, you’ll also need a funnel. But no worries if you don’t have one! Simply cut the bottom off a plastic water bottle to make your own funnel. It’s easy, cheap and works like a charm!
This is such a great sensory activity and a really simple craft for kids, teens, adults and seniors!
