Simple Spa Sensory Play

Simple Spa Sensory Play

When creating sensory bins or tactile play, we often forget an important sense…SMELL!

Here is a simple idea using many items you may have lying around the house.

Here we use fruit slices, rose petals, and ice cubes. We added them to our sensory bin (the Flisat table from Ikea).

Add spoons or a ladle from the kitchen so that your little one can practice stirring and pouring.

Your kiddo can practice serving and taking orders. Start with ordering one ingredient and increase to challenge that working memory!

And don’t forget to smell!
