Have you heard about the 100 Days of Play Challenge? It’s very cool; dreamed up by awesome mamas, Rachel of Sun Scholars and Maggy of Life at the Zoo, to inspire all of us mamas to just play, simply play, with our kids every day for 100 days.
It’s such a wonderful reminder that play with our kids doesn’t have to be elaborate. It just needs to be intentional and authentic time with our kids.
Some Super Simple Toddler Sensory Play
As part of the challenge, 100 different bloggers are sharing their simple play ideas each day for 100 days. Well, today is MY DAY, and I’m thrilled to share one of our ideas for simple toddler sensory play…
Exploring Circles through Sensory Play
With my toddler, J.C., in his high chair, I gave him a handful of different sized and colored pom poms. While he explored them, I grabbed some fuzzy, colorful pipe cleaners and shaped them into circles. Quick, easy, spur of the moment sensory play!
With just these two sensory play “ingredients,” we practiced comparing sizes, sorting pipe cleaner rings from pom poms, sorting colors, fine motor skills with placing pom poms inside rings, and MORE.
J.C. doesn’t see a pipe cleaner or pom pom he doesn’t want now!
