Looking for sensory activities for toddlers (and preschoolers, and babies, and big kids, too)?
This is the page for you.
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.
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'm not kidding that sensory is crazy important.
I know sensory activities can look intimidating...and messy
But they don't have to be!
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 take 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.
It's time to start your sensory bin journey!
Remember: sensory bins don't have to be messy.
Sensory bins don't have to cost an arm and a leg to set up.
Sensory bins don't need to be anything fancy.
It's all about providing your child with a bin that sparks their imagination and captures their attention. Have fun with it!
