Here Are The 12 Most Fun Activities You Can Do With Children

Amazing.

When Asia Citro realized her children didn't exactly "believe in sleeping," she set out on a mission to keep them entertained in a healthy way.

That mission was to create a fun, educational environment for her children at home, and to do it in a way that was fun for her, too. After posting a few of their activities on Facebook and receiving tons of positive feedback, Citro decided to create her own blog

"I really didn't think it would go anywhere because there are so many blogs," Citro told A+. "I was really lucky a couple of my first posts went viral on Pintrest."

They went viral for a good reason: Citro's activities are like nothing we've ever seen before. They combine colors, smells, tastes, and textures that would be irresistible for any child. The former science teacher worked hard to perfect her sensory play activities before posting them online.

"A lot of them take me months to figure out, which I know sounds dorky but it's totally true," she said.

Below, we've compiled 12 of the coolest sensory play activities Citro has put online, with links to their respective posts on her site.
