Sensory play does not have to be complicated or difficult. You don't even have to be creative. I will always stand by the best, easiest, and most available sensory play base is water! That’s right, give your toddler a bowl of water and a measuring cup and spoon, and watch the fun begin.
This blog post will cover some other common pantry staples you can use in sensory play, and how to use them. Always monitor your child closely when doing any sensory activity. Food play with direct contact with the food is only appropriate for children 6 months and older.
So there you have it, my top 5 pantry staples you can use in sensory play. I hope this inspires you to look through your pantry and start playing today. If you have any questions about sensory play or how to play with a purpose I am available Thursdays and Fridays at the Ankeny IFM office or reach out to me through email at Stephanie@integrativemediowa.com I would love to help!
