The Best Sensory Play Kits for Kids
Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.
Our Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!

How to Create A Juneteenth Windsock
- Grab a sheet of white paper. Fold it in half and draw the 12 point star burst. The easiest way to do this is to draw half of the star burst and then cut it out. Then cut out an outline of the burst about 1 inch wide.
- Draw a star and cut it out.
- Take a sheet of red construction paper and cut it to have a slight arc (see picture below). If you can make it slightly shorter than the blue construction paper (see picture for reference)
- Cut a thin strip of paper from the blue construction paper.
- Glue the red sheet of construction paper on the blue construction paper.
- Glue the star burst in the middle and the star in the very center.
- Wrap the blue construction around to create a cylinder. Glue the ends of the blue construction paper together.
- Cut off 3 long strips from the blue and red party streamers crepe paper
