Sensory Play Catalog

Sensory play is crucial for a child’s development. Sensory play can help your baby develop a better sense of  vision, touch, taste, hearing, and smell. While a child with cerebral palsy or other various disabilities may experience an abnormal degree of sensory processing, sensory play is still important.

Regardless of limitation, there are plenty of play ideas you and your child can engage in together. Reiter & Walsh ABC Law Centers has compiled a catalog of sensory play ideas for children of varying ages and levels of ability. Browse the catalog to find fun activities that are sure to excite and captivate your baby.

Bath time may not be fun for your child, but you can make it fun with a guessing game! Gather a variety of household items and toys with different densities such as spoons, baby bottles, bath toys, balls, etc. Fill the tub up with warm water and place your baby in the tub.

With your baby’s attention on you, take out one of the objects and place them in the water. If the object sinks proclaim that it sinks. Likewise, if the object floats, proclaim that it floats. Alternate between objects that sink and float to keep your baby’s interest. With your baby’s focus on the objects, you’ll be able to wash your child without a fuss.

A sink or float guessing game is not only a great way to make bath time easier, but is also a fun game to excite your baby’s senses.
