Sensory Play in the Kitchen is a Brain Booster
Yes, it’s Messy.
But giving kids permission to mix, mash, taste, touch, smell and spill in the kitchen inspires confidence and curiosity around new foods.
It fosters independence, confidence and resilience. Can a 2 year old snap peas? Can they recover from spilled milk and try again? Both are age-appropriate ways to nurture patience, perseverance and pride.
If they can’t stick with the task, you can easily switch gears to open-ended play, where they explore without goals or expectations.
Make Your Own Monsters
Creative, sensory fun with a sweet treat at the end!
We’ve bundled a handful of Duncan Hines Coupons—for Cake Mix, Frosting and Any Product—to get you started.
Just put out some decorations—candy corn horns, yogurt raisin warts—and see where it goes. Little ones may delight in dumping and refilling bowls. Older kids might create some wildly elaborate monsters—or go rogue and completely reinvent the project.
Either way, it’s all good.
