The babies at Kiddi Caru Whiteley had so much fun exploring their sensory tray with their farm animal toys. The children had the opportunity to feel the textures of cornflour, grass and mud whist their animals stomped and burrowed through the tray. They were encouraged to identify the different animals and demonstrated great understanding by making the animal noises. Some children can be unsure of new textures. So, the use of a beloved theme can help them to relax and explore. The children also practised great social skills, playing alongside each other and sharing the animals.
