Supplies:

  • Balloons
  • Funnel
  • Different materials from the kitchen such as: beans, rice, flour, water, sugar, playdough etc

Open up the balloon and stick it over the end of the funnel. FYI, this funnel I used was really big but if you have a smaller one it will work better and be easier to put on

alt

Add one of the kitchen items to the funnel and help guide it into the balloon

alt

Fill it about halfway up and then tie a knot at the end

Do the same with the other balloons filling them with different textured materials from the kitchen or craft room. I made 6 but you can use however many you want. I used: water, flour, sugar, beans, beads, and rice.

Lay them out and have find a cute child to play with them and guess what's inside

Encourage them to squeeze it, listen while they shake it, try to look at the shape of the pieces and smell it. Help them out with hints of course if it's difficult.

Label them as your child guesses. It's a great way for them to use their senses and fun to play with!
