31 Days Of Sensory Play {Day Six} Grow Your Sensory Collection

Welcome to Day Six of 31 days of Sensory Play.


Start a sensory collection that you can use many times.

The sticky leftover bread dough was a large no longer used pot. It’s where we stir together our playdough and it’s large enough to collect all our paint things. It lives in the kitchen. It’s so much easier having this one item than worrying about the other pots. It got me thinking about other containers that would be useful to have on hand that make sensory play easier. Easier for clean up, easier to start and easier to do.

Here’s a list for items to be on the look out for to start your collection

  • Coffee cans
  • Turkey roasting pans
  • Cookie sheets
  • Towels
  • Newspaper
  • Plastic bucket
  • Empty cardboard boxes
  • Storage containers- different sizes with lids
  • Pillowcase
  • small suitcase
  • shower curtain
  • For more ideas listen to Home supply list on Raising Playful Tots

Your turn

  • What would you add to this list to contain your sensory play to make it easier to do?
  • Add to your collection of containers
