25 Sensory Activities for Spring

By now, spring has finally shown its face everywhere, and E and I are loving it! The sun is staying out longer, plants and flowers are starting to bloom and grow again, and all of the wildlife is coming back out from hiding all winter.

What’s not to love? It’s also a perfect time to introduce your child to some spring-themed sensory activities. If you don’t know of any off the top of your head, no worries, I’ve got you covered!

Check out these 25 Sensory Activities for Spring - fun for kids of all ages, from toddlers and preschoolers to kindergarteners and elementary students!

With the 25 spring sensory activities for kids I’ve gathered, you can have fun with your child until summer! Your kids will get to explore flowers, gardening, birds and their nests, butterflies, rainbows, and other spring-related concepts all while working on their fine and gross motor skills. Your child’s face will be shining as bright as the sun when they get to dig into these fun-filled activities!

I particularly enjoyed putting this round-up together, because it gave me an opportunity to look back at some of the very first posts I ever wrote, more than three years ago! Check them out below 🙂
