Funnels, tubes, sifts, bottles, scoopers, spoons, bottle tops and sand is perfect sensory play with endless fun and exploration. But what happens when there are not enough resources?


There are exciting ways to encourage children’s investigation and exploration. Children learn best when they’re given lots of opportunities to solve problems that are meaningful to them those that arise in their day-to-day life.

“It works!”

“I’ve got sand on my spoon.”
