Sensory table activities are always my kiddos top choice during center time. The key to getting them there week after week is by changing out the filler and tools frequently to keep the learning fresh and engaging.
When it comes to filling your sensory table, the ideas are only limited to your imagination. Get creative and think about what you would have liked to play and explore with as a child. This is your opportunity to do something that you always wanted to do.
Think about what you want your outcome to be before changing out the sensory table. If you are wanting children to experiment with volume, then make sure that you include a variety of containers in different sizes. Include items such as acorns so children can discover that it takes more popcorn kernels than acorns to fill the containers.
Print the list below and I challenge you to changing out your sensory table weekly or biweekly.
Start by picking one or two types of fillers. Enhance the learning by picking items from the scoops and containers list and spice it up even more by adding an item from the extras list.
