Sensory checklist  

Sight: sensory tub that has lots of vibrant colours. Christmas lights.

Hearing: use of musical instrument and singing. Songs played by Christmas decorations . Listen to Christmas carol cd .

Touch: feel the Christmas teddies. Feel the objects in the sensory tub.. Touch paint and print onto paper/ card . Touch cinnamon salt dough.

Art/craft: hand/footprint xmas cards,  salt dough ornaments

Messy play: painting with pine cones
