Happy Earth Day! If you’re looking to set up some Earth Day themed sensory activities with your children today then we’ve got you covered with all of these great ideas. Many of these play ideas will appeal to even babies and toddlers, because you’re never too young to start appreciating the Earth that we live on!
Teaching children the importance of respecting our planet and treating it well is something I care about all year round, of course – but having one month, and a specific day set up as a reminder for this is definitely a good thing to me. I hope you enjoy these Earth Day themed sensory play ideas that I have collected featuring some of my favourite bloggers.
