Nature Sensory Activities

Being outdoors has incredible benefits, and with spring being just a few months away, we’re compiling some of our favorite sensory activities for littles!

#1. Mud Pie Kitchen


Some of our favorite memories were those of making mud “food”. We would mold the mud into whatever our imaginations created and then would paint the creations once they dried. 



#2. Creek Wading




#3. Pine Cone Sorting


Our little guy loves to gather all the different pinecones and sort them according to size. 



#4. Leaf Threading


A thin stick will work just as well for threading leaves together. This is another one of our favorites!



#5. Stone Sorting


Grab a little bucket, and let them start a collection!



#6. Lots of Grass


Playing in the grass is one of the best sensory things to do with littles!



#7.  Tree Bark Rubbing/Art


Take a large piece of paper and hold it (or tape it) on the tree. Then take some chalk and gently rub the paper over the bark! The results are beautiful! 



#8. Barefoot Sensory Walk


You can walk on grass, small pebbles, sand, mud, and so much more!



#9. Water Play


Playing with water can inspire so much imagination! 



#10. Chalk


If you have a smooth surface and some chalk, the possibilities are endless!
