The Best Easter Themed Play Trays I Found On Instagram

Educational Play Care say ‘research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction’

Here are my favourite Easter themed sensory play trays that I found on Instagram.
