and One Perfect Day

This week we are showcasing

"10 simple Sensory Play ideas"

Currently, my son (aged 2) is completely mesmerized by sensory play. He is particularly interested in the sense of touch and the squidgier and squashier (and messier) it is, the more he enjoys it! Sensory play isn't just all messy play though. It includes activities that allow children to explore through their senses, including sight, feel, smell, sound and taste. It is through sensory play that children learn and discover more about the world around them. Here are a collection of 10 simple ideas from last week's linkup, that cover various senses and use materials that most of us have easy access to. 

1. Rainbow clean mud from Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

2. Dirt sensory bin from ABC Creative Learning 

3. Shaving cream and rocks sensory play from Learn with Play at Home

4. Mirror and Light Play  from Little Bins for Little Hands

5. Green Split Pea Spring sensory bin from Buggy and Buddy

6. Dried Playdough and Water sensory play from Learn with Play at Home

7. DIY Bath Paints from Laughing Kids Learn

8. 10 Water sensory bins from Little Bins for Little Hands
