Sensory “Art” Group for Infants and Toddlers

 

The Infant/Toddler Art Group is Back! Now that the weather is more predictable, I plan on hosting an art group each month.

 

This month instead art as usual, a friend had the inspired idea of a sensory “art” group. She provided most of the sensory bins but I brought a couple too.

 

Available tools included various sorts of containers and spoons.

 

 

Tools?  Why hands  . . .

 

 

and feet, of course!

 

 

Aside from the moon sand, sand, waterbeads and rice bins pictured above, there were also bins of corn/wheat mix (hen scratch), whole corn kernel, natural materials and a water bin (not pictured).

 

 

 

This is my friend’s enviable collection of rocks, shells, driftwood, and a lone feather.

 

This was a collaborative effort so there were more sensory bins than I would have offered were I to host this one alone. If you are considering hosting a playgroup like this it would be just as wonderful on a smaller scale. Despite the many choices, the children did not seem overwhelmed. I think that having the freedom to choose which bins to play with and being able to at them for as long as they wanted was key to making this a playful event.
