Children love sensory play and are naturally drawn to it.
Here is a list of materials that I have used to promote sensory play in my classroom that my class have experimented with. My programme is made up of loads of sensory activities but I have listed 10 that are very simple to put together.
2. Split Peas
3. Shredded Paper ( with hidden animals)
4. Recycled Plastic
5. Bird Seed
6. 100's and 1000's
7. Shaving Cream
8. Dried Beans and Dried Pasta
9. Cooked Pasta
All of the above sensory ideas can be further enhanced by adding a few drops of essence to change the scent and dye, paint or glitter to change the appearance.
All of these activities need close supervision when they are done with small children.
Until next time,
