After the success of our 31 Day Sensory Play Challenge we wanted to continue exploring the world of sensory play. Drum roll please for our next challenge….. the Five Senses Play Challenge.
For the next 5 weeks we will be continuing our sensory play journey. Each week will be dedicated to one sense. Our challenge starts Monday 2nd February and ends Sunday 8th March 2015.
Week 1 – 2nd February – The Sense of Touch
Week 2 – 9th February – The Sense of Smell
Week 3 – 16th February – The Sense of Taste
Week 4 – 23rd February – The Sense of Sound
Week 5 – 2nd March – The Sense of Sight
Obviously most activities involve more than one sense so there will be some overlap but that is the wonderful thing about sensory play.
Our Five Senses Play Challenge will differ slightly from our 31 Day Sensory Play Challenge. This time there will not be a set material for each day. You are free to choose how you explore the sense of that week. You and your child can either do one activity, two activities or do a different one for each day of the week – it is completely up to you.
We shall be here for you every step of the way and provide you with lots of ideas. Each week we will give you plenty of activities to inspire your play based on the sense of the week.
The way that Adventures of Adam will complete the challenge will also be different. We shall still be posting every day but this time we are opening our blog to guest bloggers and non-bloggers to share their ideas with you. The weekly format will look like this:
We want you and your little ones to get involved in the challenge again too. After you have completed an activity based on the sense of the week go to the Adventures of Adam Facebook page and post a photograph of your play. Give us a short description of how your sensory play went. Your photographs can help inspire other parents across the globe. The Adventures of Adam Facebook page will be open throughout the 5 weeks.
If you are on Twitter you can tweet your photographs to @AdventuresAdam. Add the hashtag #FiveSensesPlayChallenge to share the sensory play love.
If you are on Instagram then you can post your sensory play photographs there. Remember to tag us – adventuresadam – and add the hashtag #FiveSensesPlayChallenge
At the end of each week we will add these photographs (with your permission) on the Adventures of Adam blog. If you would like weekly updates of the sensory play challenge direct to your inbox then subscribe to our newsletter.
