Creating sensory games and toys for your little ones is not only fun and exciting for them but it has many other benefits. Sensory play helps to build nerve connections in the brain, helps with motor skills, language development, problem-solving and more.
Just beware, this edible sand sensory play can create a little bit of a mess. However, I promise you it’s worth it. I suggest doing it outside if possible or laying a towel down to help with the mess.
If you really want to contain the mess you could try this sensory idea in the bathtub. I wish I had thought of this before because most likely you’re going to want to give your baby a little whip down after.
