The babies have been enjoying Sensory Week!
– Exploring different textures and weights of natural resources such as leaves, stones, shells and pine cones
– Tasting fruits such as sweet mango and sour grapefruit. Yum!
– Discovering home-made Scent-sory bottles containing strawberry, lemon, orange and peppermint smells.
– Exploring ‘lava’ painting – making marks in paint under laminate sheets with their fingers and sticks.
The children took it in turns to explore the resources and studied each other intently waiting to see their reaction to the taste or smell. We giggled when the sour tastes made us make funny faces!
