About Us | Mctivities Sensory Play

McTivities is a small family run business and blog based in Kilkenny, Ireland. McTivities Instagram page was created by Emma McGuinness whilst entertaining her children during the first COVID lockdown in 2020.


As a full time mum, with a background as a Special Needs Assistant for 8 years in Enable Ireland, Emma threw herself into educational and creative play with her 2 girls, Ellie and Robin. It helped keep their days interesting, engaging, educational and most of all fun, during lockdown whilst sharing each idea on Instagram with the hopes of inspiring other parents to get creative with play at home.

During Emma's 8 years in Enable Ireland, she was particularly drawn to sensory play and its many benefits. Children learn best through play but many families struggle to find the activities, materials and time. Emma's goal was to create Sensory kits for children to explore at home without parents having the hassle or stress.


You can follow @MCTIVITIES on Instagram for plenty of messy, creative and educational activities to keep the children busy and the parents sane!
