WHAT IS SENSORY ART?
Sensory art consists of specific art activities that relate to your child’s senses such as touch, sight, sound, smell and taste. By providing a variety of sensory play activities your child will naturally learn how to explore, investigate and create. These are the beginning steps to raising creative thinkers. The following art activities below are designed to provide your child an opportunity to explore and create through the sense of touch. It is important to remember that sensory art is about the process and exploration and not the end result of the artwork. Let your child have fun and explore!
