Using sensory play is a simple but effective method of learning.It is a good way for practitioners and parents to encourage the development of sensory elements within babies and toddlers
Using sensory boxes and tubs are a great way to tick off curriculum and also are a lot of fun for practitioners as well as the children!
We surfed the web to find some great sensory play ideas for you! Don’t forget to use Capture the online learning journal to make some great observations by taking videos and pictures!
