Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all of those amazing educators and parents who just seem to have it all together?
They plan thoughtful learning experiences for their Little Learners and share their fabulous ideas all over the internet. You try not to compare yourself to them, but most days it feels like you’re seriously kicking goals because nobody cut their own hair and nobody drew on your laptop screen with a sharpie (ohhhh yeah, I’ve been there).
Sometimes you catch yourself thinking “Oh man, I wish I could come up with cool ideas like that too!” so you jump onto Pinterest but there’s so.many.ideas. Where do you even start!
But guess what? You don’t need to spend hours and hours searching for the perfect sensory play ideas.
I’ve put together the ultimate sensory play resource and it’s going to save you so much time!
As a child, I remember spending most of my time outside making mud pies or making cubby houses near our dam. My mother was an early years educator who really understood the value and importance of play. She made sure that my siblings and I were given plenty of opportunities to play and explore.
Today, our children spend up to 4 hours a day in front of a screen, whether that’s the TV, iPad or a gaming device. It is now more important than ever that we allow our Little Learners to grow and learn through hands-on play experiences.
The Sensory Play for your Little Learners eBook includes 50 wonderful ideas for sensory play! Each activity has an outline of the benefits such as fine motor skill development and early oral language development. I also include a list of materials and step-by-step instructions for setting up the activity.
While you work your way through the activities in this eBook, your Little Learners will begin to explore and make sense of the world around them using their senses of sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.
The experiences you provide now will set an epic foundation for future scientific knowledge and understanding.
What are people saying about the eBook?
“I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the book before launch day, and I was so impressed! It’s set out really clearly – one activity per double page (and there are 50 activity ideas all together so there’s plenty to keep your kids busy). Casey has carefully considered the needs of different aged babies and toddlers, but I can imagine Miss M (who’s nearly 4) having fun with lots of the ideas. Her photographs in the book are light, bright and beautiful and capture the essence of the play experience. The activities aren’t too complex and do not require many materials to be purchased – some you probably have around the home already. Bottom line is sensory play is such a crucial part of a child’s holistic development and Casey’s book is a fantastic resource.”
