Letter “S” is for Sensory Play. Sensory play is any kind of activity that stimulates the 5 senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. It’s fun for kids of all ages and helps to develop knowledge of colours, textures, descriptive language and basic science principles. It can also be very relaxing for grown-ups or children who feel anxious or overwhelmed.
