Activity Ideas


All  the little people at Holly House love playing with play dough. They like it even more when they get to make it themselves. It’s cheap, quick and easy and lots of fun. Try it at home!

Top tip – why not add a little lavender oil, peppermint flavouring or vanilla essence to the play dough for an even better sensory experience!

Treasure Baskets

We introduced treasure baskets in our baby room several years ago with huge success. They create a fantastic sensory experience for those children who are, as yet, unable  to move around.  The babies love to explore the different textures, shapes and smells of the varying objects we put in there.
