Sensory Play includes any activity that stimulates your young child’s senses: touch, smell, taste, movement, balance, sight and hearing.
Sensory activities facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore.
The sensory activities allow children to refine their thresholds for different sensory information helping their brain to create stronger connections to process and respond to sensory information.
As part of our Planet’s week, we decided to create the surface of Mars.
With some pasta, red sand, and kidney beans, we learned about the composition of the soil on Mars, and then we made it!
