Baby Sensory: Little Nature Lovers

This week we held a baby sensory playdate for little nature lovers at Assiniboine Park.  It was a lot of fun to collect the items that were used for our sensory.   

We used:
  • mud (a little messy)
  • sand
  • cattails/ bulrushes
  • skunkweed
  • dried leaves
  • pine cones
  • grass clippings
  • water
  • water bottle rattles with rocks inside

When we arrived at the park, we all gathered around in a nice shady spot and the kids dug right in! 

It was neat to think of the ways that our senses were being used: the touch of the textures, the smell of the pinecones, the sound of the rocks, the different colours of the items - and even a little tasting!!

It was a great day at the park!
