The Canada Day Sensory Play Invitation
This patriotic sensory play activity shines on a light table or light box. You can also use an economical DIY lightbox as a base. It will work just fine!
A clear compartment tray showcases red and white loose parts collected for exploration.
A maple leaf cut out taken from a hanging decoration makes a nice frame to decorate with loose parts. A rectangular frame can be used too.
A clear egg carton invites sorting activities.
Transparent maple leaves and reusable ice cubes, red diamond-shaped gems, and red and clear gems provide gleaming loose parts for little learners to explore.
A small Canadian flag is another great accessory to arrange loose parts on.
Not all the items offered need to be transparent or light-themed. Rubber ducks and story stones add variety and interest.
A light-up necklace and pair of glasses add a party vibe to the sensory activity and offer additional ways to investigate light.
Maple leaf and Canadian flag finger projectors would be a fun accessory to include!
This Canada Day sensory play activity is designed for a light table or light box. But early learners would love to explore the loose parts anywhere in your home or classroom.
