Welcome to the Small Human Sensory Store... 

Sensory play includes activities that stimulates your smalls senses through touch, smell, taste, movement, balance, sight and hearing. Our smalls use their senses to explore and to learn. Even as adults we learn at our best and retain more information when we engage our senses.

Sensory Play is crucial to brain development – it helps to build nerve connections in the brain’s pathways. Not only is it fun it helps with learning tasks and supports cognitive growth, language development, gross motor skills, social interaction and problem solving skills.

The Benefits of Sensory Play:

  • Build Creativity

  • Builds and develops fine motor skills (pinching, poking, grasping)

  • Develop cognitive skills (problem-solving, cause and effect)

  • Social and emotional skills (sharing, problem-solving)

  • Learn a variety of textures and materials

  • Language abilities (learning new words)

  • Math skills (counting, shape identification and matching, timing)

  • Science concepts 

  • Responsibility and self-control (having to participate in set-up and clean-up, following instructions)


Each month a new sensory kit activity will be posted for sale.
Each kit will be a different theme using wide range of materials for hours of play. I will also share tips and tricks through my Instagram stories of how to get more uses out of your kits.

Are waterbeads safe?

Our water beads are biodegradable and inert polymers that are NON toxic. Keep unexpanded water beads away from all children 6 years and under.

Dehydrated water beads should be kept away from small children ! They come in a packet and they are tiny and they expand in water. If digested they will expand in the stomach. Please don’t leave the bag of dehydrated waterbeads around your child.

Waterbeads are completely safe for your child to use UNDER adult supervision. They are non toxic, non colour transfer. Like any other toy or food you need to watch your child and make sure they are safe. Don’t leave your child with any sensory activity unsupervised

How to use Waterbeads

Water beads are package dehydrated, they are very tiny! When submerged in water they will eventually expand up to the size of a marble. When you kit arrives empty the kit and remove all other content. Open the bag an empty the dehydrated waterbeads in the bottom of your container. The packet includes 30grams of beads.I would recomend using half of the packet to start and if you would like more you can add. 5g beads required 1.2 litres of water 5g beads makes 0.7litres onces hydrated.

How to storage waterbeads

You can store them in your sensroy bin or a ziplock bag . You can also lay them out on a tray until they dehydrate and then put them back into a bag they came in. Be aware of when storing your water beads is that they can mold so make sure to check them before play if you are storing them while wet.

How to dispose of water beads

Dont put these in your drain... You will thank me later. I crumble mine and put into the garbage bin.

Keeping Rice Fresh

To maintain quality of the rice, please ensure that your child's hands are dry when playing. You can store in the container provided or a zip lock bag with air removed and in a dark space.
