This sensory kit for kids is (unless I make too many!) exclusively available as part of the monthly sensory box subscription to Messy Play Kits. To sign up for a monthly subscription kit of art and science activities for kids, click here.
Everything in this kit is designed to be travel-safe, with a little bit of prep work at home before you take off on your next adventure! Your kiddo can take the box on the car or airplane ride and have some fun hands-on activities to keep it interesting. Maybe then you’ll get a break to focus on your own travel fun!
The Travel Messy Play Kit includes the following activities for kids:
1) A felt story monster: make a felt envelope that's designed like a monster and contains word cards inside. Your little can pull 3 word cards and then make up a story!
2) A DIY colored rice eye spy shaker bottle for auditory and visual fun!
3) A felt memory game where your child creates a set of felt memory pieces to match shapes and colors all in the box!
4) An alphabet travel journal where each page is dedicated to a different letter. Your kiddo can draw things they see that start with that letter inside the car, on road signs, on the airplane, things they imagine, things in alphabetical order, etc.
5) Felt box play that includes felt shapes plus a dinosaur and a toy car to make up pretend play scenes inside the box!
This kit comes with materials and instructions for these five sensory kids activities, as well as an affiliated website with detailed photo instructions, educational resources, and extra ideas for educational games for kids. You'll be able to see how your child is developing through play with these open ended art and science activities, all while enjoying quality time together!
Travel takes a lot of responsibility for kids. In my blog post, Responsibility for Kids: How to Teach Responsibility Through Play, you can learn more about how to utilize messy play to introduce lessons in responsibility that will make travel easier for everybody.
All kits are for ages 3 and up, and contain non-toxic, washable materials.
