Prep for sensory play by filling large bin with bird seed, plastic eggs, and sticks. Set bin on the floor and allow child to play. Make sure you monitor child to prevent choking. As the child plays, have a conversation with them about what they are experiencing. Ask them questions and use new vocabulary to describe what is happening.
Note: Please provide appropriate supervision to the children in your care when completing all activities. You will need to decide what types of activities are safe for the children in your care. Appropriate and reasonable caution should be used when providing art and sensory experiences for children. Toddlers require special caution, only use non-toxic materials, and do not allow toddlers to put things in their mouths that are a choking hazard.
