April Newsletter

I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter break, I've enjoyed having some quality family time with Alice. We went to walk Alpacas which was great fun and definitely something different to try. Getting out in nature and also a chance to stroke the animals.



So over the Easter Holidays I have been training up to do Baby Yoga. I was sceptical at first about the actual concept but after doing some research I discovered that it's actually a really fun way to learn how to interact with you baby from a young age.

It also gives great moves to counter been in the car seats for long periods of time.

Got a baby who doesn't like tummy time? Then these are the sessions for you, baby yoga teaches lots of core strengthening moves which naturally develop during tummy time.

Our first Baby Yoga class will be held at Northallerton, Pendragon 1-1:30PM Starting Friday 19th April.

Just £24 for a four week course.


Our next Mini's Showcase event will be held at Hurworth Grange on Sunday 7th July. All ticket details can be found on our sister website


New Term, New Story

This term we will be kicking the term of with our brand new book exclusive to Sunshine Sensory.

This is a non-fiction book about all the things we start to see in Spring.

I feel that it is good to provide children with a wide range of texts including non-fiction as it provides opportunities for them to develop their own reading preferences and exposes them to a wider range of language.


Birthday Parties

We have some availability for parties up until the end of August if you would like to book.

It's a non-refundable deposit of £20 with the balance due on the day.

Two packages are available: Package 1: 1 hour sensory story session includes sensory story followed by music and balloons. £60 for up to 10 children / £100 for up to 20 children

Package 2: 2 hour sensory and softplay session includes all the above with additional softplay setup. £130 for up to 10 children / £170 for up to 20 children.

Pre-Made goody bags are also available for £2.50 per child.

We can also signpost to yorkshire rose events who can provide all set up, catering and room decor.


Messy Play - Chia Seed Slime

Recently we discovered chia seeds (not only are these a superfood but they also make great messy play slime that doesn't matter if it's eaten).

I've added the recipe below. You can find more on the website: MOTHERCOULD | Easy Kids Activities, Parenting Hacks

Chia seed slime is a great way of having tadpole imagination play for an investigation tray, just throw in some chia seed slime, add some rocks and a few pretend frogs!

I'd love to see any pics of your messy play x



  1. 1/4 cup of chia seeds

  2. 1 3/4 cup of water

  3. Food Coloring

  4. 3 to 4 cups of corn starch


  1. Mix the chia seeds and water, then add food coloring.

  2. Cover and refrigerate for 8-12 hours or overnight.

  3. Uncover, then begin adding corn starch a little at a time. About a cup at a time. Mix and then continue until you achieve the desired consistency. It should be like regular slime, slimy but should be easily taken off hands.

  4. Store covered in the refrigerator. You will need to add a little water each time you take it out to use to reactivate the slime.
