1. Sensory Activities
Sensory activities are not only fun for children to engage in, but they also play a vital role in a child’s development. Engaging children with sensory activities introduces them to different objects and you could also take the chance to share new vocabulary. There are many various sensory activities and these following shops offer a variety of activities that are suitable for children of different ages.
Messy Fingers (@messyfingers.sg)
Messy Fingers offers sensory activities such as dough and water beads which come in different scents, colours and themes. Their unique themes make Messy Fingers stand out from the crowd. We really like the various themes that they offer but two of the dough kits that caught my attention include the Oishii Sushi and Unicorn Dough Kit. How cool can this get? We wished there were such dough kits when we were younger! To top it off, their doughs are made with natural ingredients which are safe for children to play with.
My Messy Box (@mymessybox)

They have specially curated different activities for the different age groups which are available for both monthly subscription and ala carte purchase. Each box has its own theme and is very comprehensive. It contains 3 – 4 activities and comes along with materials, instructions and additional resources. Parents and children can dive straight into the activities and start having fun once they have received their box!
2. Art, Music & Dance
Busy Mats (@busymatsg)
Busy Mats offers really cool mats with different themes and designs for children to colour on. They have a long list of different interesting themes and are not limited to the usual shapes and fruits. Space, Under the Sea and Carnival are some of the really unique themes that we would really love to get our hands onto. Best of all, their mats are environmentally friendly as you can simply reuse them after cleaning the ink off. With these reusable mats, your child can get to enjoy all the colouring that they would love to have!
Music & DanceExposing children to music and dance has multiple benefits for them. It helps develop a child’s listening capabilities as they are introduced to the sounds produced by different instruments and also develops their appreciation for music. Playing musical instruments and dancing also contributes to the development of a child’s muscular coordination and concentration. Additionally, engaging in music and dancing is a great way for children to express themselves and make new friends at the same time!
