Halloween is approaching and slime the perfect sensory play staple when creating invitations this time of year. To set this invitation you will need a sensory play tray, spooky cups, cauldrons, testing tubes, spooky critters, skulls, and any other halloween items that will be inviting and enticing.
Slime has the strangest characteristics in that it flows somewhat like a liquid, spilling out onto the table, but is very obviously a solid. It is ooey and gooey and cold to the touch as it flows between your fingers and down your arms. It clings to your hands, but it is not sticky, and very easy to clean up! This Discount School Supply slime is reusable, cleans easily, safe and allergy-free. Note anytime there are loose parts or non-edible materials are provided to a child, supervision is of the utmost importance to ensure safety.
While this looks like messy play, it is so much more than that. It provides children with an exciting tactile and sensory experience that inspires their curiosity, allows them to explore the world around them and enhances their learning, language and creativity. Children learn through experimentation and discovery and messy play encourages children to explore new textures and manipulate different materials through touch.
