Little Italy


Sensory Exploration. 

Italy is famous for all of its different types of pastas, they are all different shapes and sizes. Allow your child to explore some of the different pastas both raw and cooked with their hands, feet and if they are able to, by mouth. Some of the Pastas available for you to try include: 

  • Spaghetti
  • Bow tie (farfalle) 
  • Lasagne 
  • Ravioli
  • Pene
  • Conchiglie 
  • Rotini
  • Fusilli 

You can even make up some of Italy's famous pasta dishes with your child and allow them to enjoy some messy play with the food and experience the sensory exploration with the pasta and the sauces. Yummy! 

Italy Sensory Bags

Make your own italian themed sensory exploration bags! 


What you'll need : 

  • 3 Sandwich bags 
  • Hair gel / Shower gel/ bubble bath/ water/ shaving foam and food colouring. (Green, white and red colours)
  • Sellotape


Simply fill each of the sandwich bags, one with the green, one with the white/cream and one with the red. Use a good, strong tape to seal the top of the sandwich bag. Sellotape the bags down on a tray or the table in the order of the Italian Flag, let your child explore and squeeze the bags.

Rainbow TACPAC



During this challenging time let's enjoy the gift of colour and maybe get lucky and even catch a rainbow! Children can experience and begin to appreciate colour through this sensory TACPAC in a fun child-centered way. 


The children in Dosbarth Gwyrdd usually respond very positively to music and this is often part of the way they learn. As for all children we need to wrap up the learning in fun!!



Mr Tumble: I can sing a rainbow



The children in Dosbath Gwyrdd respond very positively to Mr Tumble and show great interest. Listen to this short simple song as an introduction to the Rainbow TACPAC.

CBeebies Songs | Something Special | I Can Sing a Rainbow

Join Mr Tumble, sing and sign the colours of the rainbow in I Can Sing a Rainbow. Visit CBeebies at to find even more fun games...

This TACPAC makes use of common household objects. If you don’t have any of these feel free to adapt creatively as necessary. Each colour has a child-friendly colour song that also refers to related things of the specific colour. The spelling is not relevant at this level but is a catchy part of the song.
