Another name activity Izzy and I did was a playdough name search. I found letter magnets for each of the letters of his name and hid them in a ball of playdough. The next step was for him to find each of the letters and pull them out of the playdough ball. He thought this was really fun and named each letter as he found it. Once all of the letters were found, we arranged them to spell out his name and sang his special silly name song.
Sydney and I (and Izzy) did a really fun sensory activity… edible sand! It is simply a mixture of whole wheat flour and oil. You can find the original recipe here. It is really cool because it looks and feels incredibly similar to sand. And both of my babies absolutely love sand! They could probably spend their entire lives playing in sand boxes if I would let them and this activity was a great indoor alternative.
