Voices of the Valley – Fun Sensory Activities for Toddlers

When I think of sensory activities, I can’t help but think of bins of macaroni and slimy stuff to put through your fingers. But there’s more to the senses then just touch; sight, smell, taste, touch, sound as well as movement.

The internet is a wealth of information and ideas to create sensory experiences for your children at home. The web site Hands on As We Grow is a wonderful resource.

These sensory activities are great for exploration, learning and using all different senses!
