Sensory activities are soooooooooo good for kids! They help promote social, emotional, and intellectual development! There is even a positive correlation between sensory development and a reduction in biting in toddlers. Very interesting!
During my turn to teach preschool we did an awesome sensory activity using spaghetti noodles. They were so silly about it! They told me how their parents never let them play with their spaghetti! I think that made the activity all the more fun for them!
In the end, all that was left was a big pile of painted noodles! The kids really liked seeing what colors they could make the noodles when they mixed the colors! This is a great way to incorporate science into your sensory project!
