100 Sensory Play Ideas

Welcome to our 200th post. We have reached another milestone at House of Burke! For our 100th post, we celebrated with 100 Baby Play Ideas, so to celebrate the next 100 posts in the archives, here are 100 Sensory Play ideas from House of Burke and some of our dear friends! 

We are sharing 60 of our sensory play ideas ranging from oldest to newest. I have also chosen to feature 5 of my favorite fellow blogging Mamas: And Next Comes L, Fun At Home With Kids, Still Playing School, Lalymom, and Frogs, Snails, and Puppy Dog Tails and 8 of my favorite sensory play activities of theirs. These ladies have phenomenal blogs and a plethora of great sensory and other activities and crafts to explore. You could get lost for hours on each! Please make sure you check them all out! And, without further ado - let's get down to the sensory fun!
