In this blog, we'll explore six delightful summer holiday ideas for sensory play using Edx Education toys outdoors.

What better way to beat the summer heat than with water play? Create a water wonderland in your backyard using Edx Education's Water Play Set. This set includes vibrant water channels, funnels, and spinners that can be assembled to form a fantastic water exploration system. Watch as your child's creativity flows while they experiment with water currents, observe the movement of objects, and learn about cause and effect.
2. Colourful Garden Adventures
Transform your garden into a colourful sensory haven using Edx Education's Rainbow Pebbles. These versatile and tactile pebbles come in various shapes and sizes, encouraging imaginative play and creativity. Allow your child to arrange them in beautiful patterns or create mandalas, inspiring a sense of tranquility and harmony amidst nature's beauty. You can also use the Rainbow Pebbles for counting, sorting, and introducing basic math concepts in a playful manner.
3. Sensory Scavenger Hunt
Combine the thrill of a scavenger hunt with sensory exploration using Edx Education's themed counters. Hide these themed counters throughout the outdoor space and provide your child with a list of clues to find them. When they discover counters, they can create a story of the adventure dinosaur, animal, transport vehicle This activity enhances communication, listening skills, sensory and cognitive abilities in an exciting and interactive way.
