Kids can spend hours playing with sand. As summer begins, it’s important to get kids outdoors. So, give them sand to dig, pour, sift, scoop and use their imagination. Sand play provides a great sensory opportunity for tactile learning. And it’s fun!
Slime is so much fun to play with. It’s squishy, slimy, and super-sensory! Slime is also science, so introduce slime as a play activity and sneak in a chemistry lesson, too. This is a great hands-on experiment that lets kids be messy. And kids love messy!
Bubbles are always a hit with our buddies on the playground: https://youtu.be/m_DgXp7eTZQ. Playing with bubbles is fun to feel and can also help with coordination, motor, and visuospatial skills. Bubbles can be a favorite at home, too!
