Sensory play is a simple but important concept for teaching young children about the world around them. Sensory play is an activity that stimulates the senses, including sense of touch, smell, sight, taste, and sound. First experiences such as tasting a sour lemon or holding a cold ice cube help little ones become more aware and learn to sort or classify objects.
