Exploring the senses is a fantastic way for tots to investigate the world around them and we can help support that by creating sensory bins and trays for them. This week on Tuesday Tots I’m sharing 7 ideas for simple Sensory bins and trays that you can create at home or in your childcare environment.
First off is Happy Hooligans with a fall sensory table – along with experiencing elements of fall there is fantastic information about how to set it up as well as using it and expanding it. I just love the images of the children exploring

I have wrote previously about using finger paints with T – I made my own which is a great recipe for anyone who would like to make their own and has a much younger baby than T.
