Christmas Sensory Play Table

Christmas is an exciting time; it is also a time when we pull out all our Christmas decorations.

There are lots of great sensory toys to explore with Christmas decorations, so I set up a sensory play table using several Christmas decorative items.

The play table included tinsel, bells, beads, glitter snowflakes and an array of ornaments.  You don’t need a lot to set up and create an effective Christmas Sensory Play Table.

Let’s Play 

Hands on! Getting creative and using some tinsel threaded with candy cane ornaments. Listening to the noise of the rustling tinsel and exploring its texture.

Let’s Explore 

Engaging in all the senses, looking, touching, feeling, smelling, (not tasting) exploring and having so much fun!

Let’s Learn 

Miss 4 and 5 went from picking up one item to another; touching, feeling, looking and exploring as they went. Miss five created a story using pretend and made up characters with a wooden Christmas ornament and the Christmas angle.

Sensory tables are undirected and open-ended to the imagination and creativity.   Allowing kids to create freely encourages self-expression, I love to watch them develop their own ideas!
