Children playing in the metal tub filled with seedsKids demonstrate curiosity in their explorations of the sight, touch, smell, and sound of the materials being manipulated. Sensory play can be thought of as “food for the brain.” It naturally helps to develop the sense of touch, strengthens fine-motor muscles, invites scientific inquiry, and supports the discovery and differentiation of material properties.

This exhibit will be updated soon with new and improved excavation activities.
