Sensory Play Activities

Here at Stir the Wonder we love sensory bins and other types of sensory play activities! We use sensory play activities to enhance children’s literature, learn about science as well as help to regulate tactile senses and work on fine motor skills. Below you will find a collection of sensory play activities for hands-on learning that we have enjoyed, including sensory bins, play doughs, sensory doughs and slimes!
