Cornmeal Sensory Play

Looking in my pantry is always the best way to create some fun sensory play in our house. New textures and smells are so engaging and fun to play with. On this day my two-year old had so much fun with some cornmeal and dino's!

  • Step 1

    Cornmeal has such a nice texture. When I was looking for something to be an indoor sand box I knew cornmeal would work perfectly. I first tried a cake pan and had to pull out a large baking sheet. Grayson needed much more digging room than the cake pan could offer!

  • Step 2

    We filled the baking sheet with cornmeal and added the dinosaurs and a few cookie cutters to make fun prints. He loved every minute of this and my five-year old eventually joined in too.

  • Done!

    When we were all finished I saved the cornmeal for some more play another day and pulled out the vacuum for a quick clean up. Very easy!
