Using socks as flippers and white paint, we created our very own walruses! We began the project with a discussion about what walruses, where they live, what they eat, and what flippers are!
We then dove into the paint, and created a messy, but fun masterpiece! This sensory activity was one of the favorites for the week!
Sensory play is important because it gives children the change to play with different types of textures, which helps them to build new ways of talking about the world.
Sensory play is also calming for young children. It helps regulate their internal discomfort by soothing their senses and providing a creative outlet for their emotions.
