There are so many amazing activities that you can do when your focused on senses. A good argument could be made for every activity that we do all year long involving your senses... But to specifically make it a focal point is a whole different ball game and it's honestly been so much fun to watch what the teachers and the kids come up with!
We are almost halfway through the week and just wanted to share with you some highlights from sensory week (so far). If you aren't already talking to your kids about what they are learning at school, I highly suggest that you start. I'm hearing 18 kids talking five hundred miles a minute every time that I go into a new room trying desperately to convey the magnitude of what they are learning!!
Our Toddler One and Two classes stayed combined for their sensory experiment today. They made homemade playdough and added different scents to it, there by exploring their sense of touch, sight, and smell. They loved it and we have bagged up all of the delicious smelling play-dough for further use!
I am so excited to see how this week continues to progress and am especially excited for the scented and colored water buckets for water day! We'll call it fairy soup.
Have a great rest of your week!
