31 Days Of Sensory Play {Day Eleven} Your home is a blank canvas for Sensory Play

Welcome to Day Eleven of 31 days of Sensory Play.

Don’t get stuck in a rut with your sensory play locations. It’s not always about new ideas sometimes it is about new locations for our favourite activities. With active boys who want to move we try and accommodate the wiggles. Keeping active and moving is something kids want to do naturally. Sensory Alphabet Activities, our ebook, still remains one of our favourite activities to do because they get to move around the house and be creative.

It is easier for me that they sit but it’s not right for them if this is what we do all the time.

Getting the balance between creativity which tips over into silliness and quiet focused activity. There’s so much in between and for different days my tolerance level changes.  The volume and energy or young ones is powerful inside a small space. Playdates seem to get that way pretty quickly.

When I had a small baby who cried and cried. Going outside released my tension and his. Now when we have activities at the back of my mind I have an escape plan that will swing the mood up or down in reserve. Many times we need to calm things down and sometimes we need to lift the mood. I choose something off this list to keep things different and appeal to our moods.
