Easy, Healthy Baby & Toddler Meals, Snacks and Activities

3 Sep - Sensory Play...

Hi there. It's Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com.

I have finally established a quiet time with my daughter, where she plays on her own with a sensory tub, and I can get a little work done.

She loves scooping and pouring sensory materials. So this week I'm sharing some of our favorite sensory activities of the last month.

The family: Fred is my headstrong pre-school boy, and Sarah is my sweet little toddler girl.

Sensory activity - Feed the animals sensory bin

This Feed The Animals sensory bin combines math with a sensory experience.

Older kids can count the scoops, and serve it to the specific animals on the feeding cards.

Younger kids can use your guidance or just explore on their own.

You can use any sensory item to feed to the imaginary animals, including popcorn kernels, rice, birdseed or even buttons for a non-food option.

Sensory activity - Blowing bubbles

Kids of all ages can enjoy this bubble blowing sensory activity.

You just need some bubble solution (you can make your own) and straws. Let your kids blow bubbles, pop the bubbles, and smear the solution to make shapes. Lots of fun with only a few supplies needed.

Bonus: Homemade bubble solution recipe

Sensory activity - Easy 2 ingredient cloud dough

You can make the softest playdough (or cloud dough) with cornstarch and hair conditioner.

It's a great sensory activity that also hones fine motor skills.

Sensory activity - Rainbow soap foam

I like this rainbow soap foam sensory activity because you only need supplies that you are sure to have in your home (soap and water), and it is not too messy.

You can use any colors you have in your home, or just leave it white if you don't have coloring.

Supplies needed:

  • Sensory filler
  • Bubble solution (you can make your own)
  • Straws
  • Dish soap
  • Cornstarch
  • Conditioner
  • Food coloring
