Come and Play in the Hay!
Hay provides a sensory experience for children to explore openly with their peers in different ways. Place some hay bales and some loose hay and see what happens!
Hay Bales provide some structure and a platform for jumping or walking across, while still being lightweight and movable for children to manipulate into different shapes and create their own play spaces.
Providing rakes, shovels and buckets allows children to move the loose hay and explore it in different spaces, as well as encouraging them to tidy and look after the space.
An environment set up from children's interest in the home corner and hay.
Scissors and mortar and pestles were then added for children to grind and cut their own hay to include in their recipes.
