The Best Sensory Play Kits for Kids

Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.

Our Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!

How to Set Up Campfire Pretend Play for Kids

This was such a fun activity and I wish I could take credit for it. But all credit for this activity goes to my imaginative kids! They were out in the backyard playing and started to collect sticks. One of them had the idea to make a campfire. So they started collecting sticks to make the biggest campfire ever!

Our backyard is surrounded by trees so finding tons of sticks and twigs to make a campfire was not difficult! Once they had their pile, they started to set it up to look like a campfire. Then in walks mommy and the requests start to fly: Mom can we have some rocks?; Mom, can we have some marshmallows?

I saw what they had started and where they wanted to take it and I was all on aboard.

So I headed inside to grab my stash of supplies of rocks and other ideas I thought would enhance their pretend play. I found a bag of white packing peanuts I had saved years earlier. They would make perfect marshmallows!

I brought everything out and they started to make their campfire better. They surrounded it with rocks. Then they found sticks that would make got marshmallow roasting sticks and I slid a few of the white packing peanuts for them to roast.

I also cut a few pieces of cardboard up in the shape of graham crackers (square) and they used them to make s’mores! I even added some red and yellow and orange feathers to the pretend campfire to make it look more like fire!

Total hit

This was such a hit that after dinner we all went back out as a family to pretend cook real marshmallows on bamboo skewers!

How to Set Up Shaving Cream Sensory Bin

Have you even tried playing with shaving cream with your preschooler? It is so much fun and not as messy as you would think. The set up for this sensory bin is crazy simple and that is one of the reasons I love it so much.

Simply grab your sensory bin or sensory table and fill it with shaving cream. Next, add some water to make it into a soup.

Add bowls and spoons for scooping and whisks for mixing. You can also add some pretend play kitchen items. Then watch them play! It was such as fun way to keep them busy while I sat and finished my coffee!

Clean Up

Clean up of shaving cream is super easy. If it is warm enough get out your hose and wash everyone down. Rinse out your sensory bin. I did not do this activity on grass. If you are doing this activity on grass, I would be careful how much shaving cream you let get on your grass.

Age Suitability

This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 2, 2, and 5 year old.
