Sensory play for children is so fun and albeit messy but worth it! Curious why it matters? PBS Parents says "Sensory activities and sensory tables facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore." Below are some Facebook post from around the child care community with different ideas and uses for sensory play for the fall season.
At my house we bought some hay from Michaels, some sparkly spiders and seasonal gourds and pumpkins. The children really like to feel hay and watch it fall from their hands. The 14 month old really had fun trying to stack the gourds and pumpkins in different ways.
