SENSORY PLAY IS SO IMPORTANT FOR ALL KIDS – ALL AGES AND ALL ABILITY LEVELS. START YOUR JOURNEY HERE.
Looking for sensory activities for toddlers (and preschoolers, and babies, and big kids, too)?
This is the page for you – a page dedicated to sensory activities.
Sensory activities are amazing. They are a quick and easy way for kids to learn so much – the learning that happens during a sensory bin is truly unbelievable.
Wondering what a sensory bin is? I’ve got all the answers.
When a child is playing with a sensory activity, they are:
- Working on independent play skills
- Math skills (capacity)
- Imaginary play / dramatic play
- Life skills (pouring, scooping, transferring)
- Fine motor skills
- Tactile learning
- Developing self-control

I know sensory activities can look intimidating…and messy
But sensory doesn’t have to equal messy.
Kids can learn to play without making a giant mess, inside the rules of the activity, and keeping the sensory bin area (relatively) clean.
It just takes some good ol’ fashioned firm, clear, and consistent boundaries.
Set yourself up for success and set your child up for success – a little pre-planning and extra thinking before starting a bin is paramount to it’s success.
