Cherubs cous cous Sand

If your little one is anything like mine (puts EVERYTHING in his mouth), then sandpits are most likely out of the question for awhile.
This is a super fun, alternative sensory experience that will have your little using all their senses.
Oh, and it's safe and yummy to eat!
Age: 6months +
All you need is some cou cous.
Any brand will do and prepare as packaging suggests.
If you'd like to add a twist to this sensory experience you could add some herbs or spice like ginger, parsley or basil.
I made up 2 cups of dry cous cous as I wanted quite alot.
I have also done a similar experience with a smaller amount in the highchair.
Looks good enough to play with!
I left it in a bowl to start with to see what the H man would do with it.
I put it and him in a plastic tub to keep it all contained.
Oooh whats this!
Make sure your little one is clean, fresh nappy, clean hands and feet etc. I would of put him in with just a nappy on however it was just a touch cool.
Grabbing handfuls!
Straight in the mouth!
Sprinkle, sprinkle
Miss M wanted a play too.
Why not sprinkle it all over your little brothers head!
If you squish it you can mould it!
What is this stuck to my fingers?
I helped him stand up so he could feel it on his feet.
It was just hard to take a photo
Play on a high chair tray with smaller amounts.
Add herbs or spices for flavour and scent.
Mix vegie puree through it and finger paint!
Have lot's of fun!
Enjoy and Play
