Looking for a few fresh sensory play ideas? These sensory activities are full of fun and creative ways to explore the senses while learning through taste, touch, sight, smell, the auditory sense, and even proprioception and vestibular sensory systems! One of our favorite ways to explore and learn with kids is through sensory play. There’s a reason why…when we encourage our kids to participate in sensory play, they learn! Getting kids involved in messy sensory play, sensory play dough, sensory tables, or slime sensory play encourages gross and fine motor skills, motor planning, and so much more.
