Sensory Muffin Tin

Little ones love touching and feeling different objects and trying to guess just what they are or how they’re the same or different than other things. Putting together a sensory muffin tin is a quick and easy way to keep kids occupied with a fun activity while they also learn!

With a six-cup tin for youngest readers and a twelve-cup tin to try and stump older kids, you have plenty of space to add items that are soft and hard, cold and warm, crunchy and crumbly, spiky and smooth, and so many more! Talk with kids and ask them to describe what they feel and see. This is a great way to build observational skills as well as vocabulary!

To make the tin into a game, have kids close their eyes or blindfold them and let them feel the different items and guess what they are.
