Kids love to learn about the Earth and these Earth Day sensory experiences are a fun and playful way to do so!
My children love learning while engaging their senses. I find that they retain so much more when they are able to engage many of their senses while learning about something.
These activities are a great way to teach your child about the Earth, while doing so in a way that is hands-on and playful!
Here are my Top 10 Earth Day Sensory Experiences for Kids!
