Fall Sensory Play Mix Up!

How do you teach a toddler how to pour a glass of milk?

How will your preschooler begin to understand capacity?

With simple sensory setups that encourage pouring and scooping, of course!

There are so many hidden foundational skills to learning in sensory play that we may not always think about. For starters, think about how the weight of a container changes as it is filled, or how mixing red and blue liquids to become a new color.

Easy Toddler Activity

So what’s the BIG idea?

Here, your taby, toddler, or preschooler is working on a vertical surface. This is strengthening his core and arm muscles for future skills such as throwing and swinging.

Your child is also discovering new textures.

According to, Loose Parts 2 , “Touching is the most fundamental means of contact with the world.”

The book continues to state, “Since our skin is one of the most sensitive parts of our body and provides much information about the world and it’s messages, it makes sense that young children spend so much time exploring how touch feels to their bodies”

Isn’t that powerful?!

Sounds like touch and texture needs to be integrated into more daily preschool activities.

Halloween Sensory Play

Get ready for some super fun Halloween sensory play! 

We all know that kids and water are like beans and rice. They just go together! 

We also know that change and variation are great for the mind.  I have always loved a change of seasons. It keeps things fresh and exciting and I am sure this is how kids feel as well with learning.
