I love doing multi-sensory projects with my kiddos. Both children especially love exploring their sense of touch. For a recent winter craft, my daughter and I made an adorable sensory snow globe penguin.

- Paint the front of one paper plate with the black paint.
- Allow the paint to dry thoroughly.
- Cut a circle from a second paper plate.
- Pour some corn syrup, glitter, and small beads into the plastic bag.
- Seal the plastic bag.
- Tape the plastic bag around the paper plate circle.

- Cut one large circle and two long ovals from the black paper.
- Cut one square and two feet from the orange paper.
- Fold the orange square in half.
