As a leading supplier of playground equipment in the UK, we understand how important sensory play is. We have a specialist department that concentrates entirely on sensory play. This is the department that ensures the provision of excellent sensory playground equipment. We also address common questions parents and teachers may have about sensory play.

What is Sensory Play?

5sense3Before anything, let’s give you the simplest answer to this question.

Sensory Play is any activity that stimulates a child’s senses such as hearing, sight, smell, touch, taste, movement and balance and there are numerous sensory activities that a child can get involved in.

Many people think of only sand and water play when they hear the words sensory play. We can assure you at Creative Play, sensory play is not so limited. We have many ways in which children can develop their senses, besides water and sand play.

For instance, we have a fantastic Sandhut Major, designed to assist in the development of various key senses. This play equipment is one of the best sensory pieces for schools. Children can use it to create games of their choice allowing creativity and improving social skills, from imaginative play.

As the Sandhut Major can be closed to allow an ideal performance stage, children can build their confidence through performing to each.

Other equipment we have at Creative Play that shows sensory play is more besides sand and water play, are playboards. These can be added to playgrounds and sensory gardens. Playboards improve children’s fine motor skills, as they play and explore the various sounds and rhythms.

We also have a painting station that is a great addition to our sensory play collection. The painting station fosters creativity, cooperation and social skill development, amongst children.

Our specialists also supply great sensory garden equipment that’ll make a great addition to your child’s sensory play time.

From what is explained above, it is clear that sensory play is not limited to just sand and water play. Since our specialists understand this, we stock an enormous range of sensory play equipment.

Our aim is to see your child develop their senses and use them to fully understand their world.
