Sensory Materials

Sensory Experiences & Sensory Play Activities for Young Children

Here's a challenge - what other sensory materials can we use in our sand and water tables? Some programs do not allow the use of food such as rice or grains. That leaves birdseed, potting soil, and woodchips or kidfetti. The goal is to have materials that can be used to fill containers and easily poured or dumped. We also offer some variations on sand. Shape It Sand is easy to mold and never dries out and Bubber feels like sand, is ultra-light weight and can also be molded.
