Sensory Art or Not

I reinforced an idea today; the art table doesn't need to be used just for art or crafts.
It's a great table to use for sensory play.
Art is a sensory experience and shaving cream play has art components.
Mixing colours, textures, experimenting and self expression.
Plus a great fine motor work out.
Beautiful oceans came to life today as well as stories to be told.
It was interesting to watch these twins and their approach to the play.
 She was totally hands in, up to the elbow.
He was tenative, trying a little at a time.
Their approach may be different but their learning was the same.
Another couldn't wait to give it a try and a taste.
