 Top 10 Edible Sensory Play Activities for Kids

Sensory activities for kids are not only fun, they are almost guaranteed to hold their attention! Sensory activities are great because we learn best and retain the information even better when we use our senses. Since children learn about their world “hands-on”, providing them opportunities to learn with their senses is imperative. These Top 10 Edible Sensory Play Activities for Kids are fabulous because if your kiddos decide to taste them, or put them in their mouth, it’s no problem. We are in love with these activities for kids that are designed to engage their senses. The best part is that they are EASY to make. Grab your kids and have some sensory fun!
