Easy + Engaging Sensory Play Ideas From Our Community

Did you know sensory play benefits your child's growth and development?

"Sensory play focuses on activities that engage your child’s senses, helping them develop language skills and motor skills. It also helps with cognitive growth, fosters social interactions and encourages experimentation." - The Cleveland Clinic

We've partnered with two members of our community, Madison Page and Alessa Formentin, to share engaging sensory activities their littles love!
