Sensory Experiences at Children 1st @ Main Street
The Jemima Puddleducks and Bobtails have been putting their senses to full use through a range of experiences.
The children made their own sensory bottles by using their fine motor skills to pick up the objects to place inside. They concentrated and persevered so well as they tried to put the objects into the bottle making sure they got it in. Some of the children used a spoon to scoop up the items. The bottles made great shakers!
The staff used recycled resources to create a touch and feel sensory board for the children to explore. Each flap contained a different textured material for the children to feel. The babies really enjoyed lifting the flaps and seeing what texture was inside.
Finally, the children explored the feel of cold ice on their hands. The ice was coloured so that as it melted, it made colourful marks on the paper. As the babies moved the ice, they noticed the different marks it made on the paper.
Our children had so much fun exploring the different activities and using their senses. We hope you enjoy looking through the photo gallery.
