As a preschool teacher I get asked a lot about how I teach. One thing I usually say is that in my class my students explore with all their senses. This isn’t because of careful planning it’s just a fact. Young children use all their senses to make sense of what they are experiencing. Because that is how they learn we also have to teach that way. Here are 18 Easter sensory activities that are wonderful experiences for all their senses.
