Finger painting fun... This sensory activity is an excellent tactile experience for you little ones, it not only stimulates your child's senses but encourages cognitive development. A great at-home play idea for the weekends and holidays. #youngacademics#earlylearning#fingerpainting
| Cassia Seed Sensory Play |
Ok I have to know! How many of you have heard of this Cassia Seed Sensory Play thing?! I’ve personally NEVER heard of it, until I chanced upon one of its play areas while shopping in one of the malls in Singapore on our recent holiday!
Imagine a big sand pit at an indoor playground but instead of sand, it’s filled with these dark colored Cassia seeds and a heap of your usual sand play toys like scoops, containers, trucks, buckets as well as slides and a cubby house. I saw it and knew straightaway without a doubt that my toddler would LOOOOOVE playing here so while hubs and I were shopping up a storm at Daiso (more on that in another post 😉), my amazing parents played here with my toddler for about an hour!
Best of all, unlike sand, these Cassia seeds DO NOT stick onto bodies or clothes, making it super easy to brush/shake off once you step out of the play area. After an hour of engaging in sensory play goodness, my toddler went home CLEAN! 👌🏼🙌🏼
Now can anyone tell me where I can find Cassia seeds so I (I mean hubs) can make me a Cassia seed sandpit in my backyard? 🤷🏻♀️🤣
p.s I’ll upload videos of my toddler at play after I put both kids to bed tonight so you can see the amazingness of this!
Our Goodstart Redgum Drive centre use light tables and natural resources to create magical sensory play experiences, as well as letting the children use it to investigate colours, shapes, and other self-directed activities. The learning opportunities are endless!

Reptiles, prehistoric and more recent, mammals and birds are all featured in the AnaMalz range.
With wood bodies and fabric embellishments, their legs bend so they can be manipulated to play, and even balance in different positions.
We love incorporating them into an invitation for small world play!
