Pasta is one of our favorite sensory materials for many reasons, one of them being because it lasts forever. Melted crayon art is the perfect way to use up old crayons and broken pieces. I remember “painting” with crayons on a warm skillet back in kindergarten, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

We love hosting messy play dates, especially in the summer when we can get messy and rinse off in the sprinkler! My kids are super social creatures, and they constantly ask when we are having our friends over again. There have been seasons of our life when we have hosted regular Friday play dates with our play group. We had a busy year, so the play dates have slowed down.
