15 Taste Safe Toddler Sensory Play Ideas

Toddler Mania continues in full swing! Today, I am so excited about my guest blogger who is sharing some simple toddler play and I can’t wait to introduce you! Laura from Lalymom is constantly amazing me with her creative fine motor and recycled play. I am so excited to share some of the most awesome taste safe toddler sensory play ideas, gathered and curated by Laura.

15 Fun Toddler Sensory Ideas that are Taste-safe


SHARE YOUR AWESOME Taste-Safe Toddler Sensory Play Ideas

Hello there, it’s me Laura from Lalymom! I’m so happy guest post here today since I really admire the work Dayna does over here! The first time I met Dayna she had this brilliant idea to use leftover baby cereal in a play recipe. I thought that was genius, so it is only fitting that I share a collection of 15 Taste-Safe Toddler Sensory Play Ideas!

I did include that awesome play recipe of hers, and although she calls it baby safe, I think it’s great for toddlers too. Plus it makes sense that if you are moving on from baby cereal and have some left over…it PROBABLY means you have a toddler in the house!

NOTE: These will range from ideas that are totally safe and yummy to gobble up, to some that are safe to taste but are not meant to be consumed in large quantities. Please be sure to read through each recipe to know for sure!
