Investigating Detectives: Kid Sensory Science and Gardening with Egg CartonsSensory Play is a big buzz word. Back in the day, all my play time was sensory play. I'd run around outside, get filthy making mud pies and sand ice cream, dash through the sprinkler, plop in the bath, (where I swirled Dad's shaving cream into Mom's shampoo painting Picasso's all around the tub) and head to bed one truly happy camper. Make a sensory science egg carton garden with your kids!

Everyday is Sensory Play day! Last week, Jake was covered in mud he found in a hole in the backyard. I plan to make some mud paint for my next sensory post.
Amanda loves to investigate with her magnifying glass, ziploc baggies, and spoons from the kitchen drawer.
When our seedlings come up, we'll plant them in this little garden box we built together last year. We have healthy strawberry plants already!

Science projects cover the front porch, 'Please watch your step.' Our favorite toys are anything we can find growing in the yard.
Bonus = lots of free toys!
A Whole lot of fun with the Tickle Me plant.
