40 Plus Sensory Activities for Babies and ToddlersWhen my girls were babies I went hardcore, no holds barred, sensory play 24/7 with them.  I was obsessed! I even started a play group just so that I could think of more ways to give babies and toddlers sensory experiences.  As a result, I have a pretty big arsenal of great sensory ideas and activities you can do with your little ones.  I put them together all in one place in an attempt to make things a bit easier to find.  I’ve categorized them too. From Mushy Gushy Sensory Play to Science Sensory Play to everything in between. I hope this is helpful! Sensory play is a fantastic way to help kids explore their worlds, stimulate the senses, and create little inquisitive explorers.  Have fun with those little guys in your life.  Mine are now 2 and half and almost four.  We still get our sensory on but now are able to get into a little more process art.  Click here to check out 50 plus art projects you can do with your three to five year olds.  A master process list post is coming soon too!
