I bet the first thing you think of when you hear sensory play is mess and more mess. But sensory play is more than just children getting their hands dirty in messy gloop.

Why is sensory play so important?
Sensory play is a way of learning about the world through our senses. It is not something that should be confined to our very young children.

Sensory play is about Science, Maths, Geography, Arts and so much more.
