Sensory Play Ideas

Before my son was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder, I had never heard of the term sensory play. Now, I search the web for ideas. Sensory play is basically any activity that stimulates a child's sense of touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing or any combination of those listed. From digging matchbox cars out of a bucket of rice to playing a home made drum, sensory play does not need to be complicated to be beneficial.

Sensory play is an important aspect in early childhood development for all children. For children with sensory processing disorder sensory integration activities can be highly beneficial. For this reason, we have created a whole Pinterest board full of sensory play ideas. Head over to to explore different sensory play ideas.

Let us know if you have any fun sensory activities in the comments section below.

Rachel H. is planning to try out many of the ideas on the sensory board while her kids are home chanting how bored they are while on holiday.
