Sensory tray 🖐🏼 with frozen ❄️ shaving cream and sea creatures 🐳 🐚

As my little one is absolutely obsessed with sea creatures, we decided to do some sensory frozen shaving cream tray with the figurines from the Sea creatures and insects Mystery bag. This activity ticked so many boxes: They can feel  how the texture of the shaving cream changes with the temperature (changes on state of matter through temperature variation… yes, yes you can teach physics even to a 2 years old ), discovery of the animals as they find them in the “ocean” so they practice they vocabulary ( vocabulary building exercise) , they got to wash them clean( practical life skills development, very important), sort them by color, count them and assess which category has the least or the...

Krispy Rice Dinosaur Egg Delights 🦖 🥚 🍡

Listening to the audio files of the Dinosaur Adventure activity set, we find out that the main difference between these two disciplines is well established. Paleontology studies the history of life on earth and is based on the study of fossils (of life forms such as plants, animals, microorganisms, fungi, etc.). Archeology, on the other hand, is the study of past human societies. Archeologists will consequently study artifacts, tools, ancient ruins and other remains that are evidence of those past societies. A cave-painting - being a form of artistic expression in past human societies - is therefore studied by archeologist, whereas dinosaur fossils are studied by paleontologists. To deepen this concept, I took advantage of my husband’s amazing artistic skills...
