Peas are a lovely resource to use for sensory play. Firstly, it is quick and easy to prepare, Secondly, it really exercises the pincer grip. Thirdly, it is edible so no need to stop baby from putting it in his mouth and lastly it is easy to clean.
All you need are some cooked peas and a bowl/plate. You can add a spoon to practise scooping or as we did use a duplo block to put the peas into the holes.
There you have it. A quick and easy sensory activity without too much mess.
