Sensory Tray Ideas That Will Make For A Sensational Summer

Sensory tray or bin… it doesn’t matter. What matters is the contents you put inside yours! Here at Homeschool Mastery Academy, we adore sensory play. The educational benefits to sensory trays are many. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, motor skills, problem-solving skills, social interaction and much more!

But beyond the remarkable benefits of sensory play, sensory trays are super versatile. You can change them out daily with different items, so they never become boring.

The bottom line is that kids of all ages can benefit from and love sensory play.
