Small World Sensory Play Fill a container with sand or dirt – maybe you have a sandbox? Your child can add sticks, flowers, rocks, small toys/animals/trucks and make a tiny world. They might even build a house out of things you found in your yard.
Washing Station Sensory Play For an easy sensory station, fill up a bucket, sink or large tupperware container with warm soapy water. You may want to put a bath towel underneath. Add kitchen utensils, small toys, whatever you have handy. Try seeing which items sink and which items float! Or just have fun playing in the bubbles.
