Crab Sensory Play

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.

They 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.

To incorporate this kind of play into our crustacean curriculum (and tie into our science domain), we decided to create crab habitats.

Using a few natural materials (and some not so natural!), we created the perfect home for our crustacean friends!
