We are hosting the Five Senses Play Challenge for the second year running. The idea is simple. Each week has one of the five senses allocated to it. For that week we shall focus on play activities based on that sense. The challenge will last for five weeks.
It is up to you whether you choose to complete a sensory play activity each day, every other day or even just once a week. We have plenty of ideas to get you inspired.
This year we have created a Downloadable 5 Senses Play Challenge Calendar to help you with activity ideas.
Download your copy and keep it handy on your computer. Each morning simply open the calendar, locate the current date and click on the image. It will take you to the sensory activity idea for that day.
Here are the sensory activities that you will find on the free downloadable calendar:
Week 1 – Sense of Touch
Week 2 – Sense of Smell
Week 3 – Sense of Taste
Week 4 – Sense of Sound/Hearing
Week 5 – Sense of Sight
