We love quick and simple sensory activities at our house, and as a bonus, this one doesn’t make a mess and is easy to pick up: Toddler Play with Straws and Cotton Swabs! It’s a classic toddler boredom buster with simple materials that you most likely have on hand right now, takes a minute to set up, and is engaging for your toddler – just all around a great little activity!
