Sensory stimulation is an essential part of a baby and toddler’s development. During sensory play sessions, they will discover their five senses, while seeing, feeling, touching, hearing and tasting, and have a great time doing so! Hong Kong is heaving with baby and toddler playgroups, and we’ve gathered all the ones specializing in sensory play right here for you! We’ve also included local Hong Kong vendors selling amazing sensory activity kits, so your kid can have their own play session right at home (cleaning up service not included)!
Specializing in the Reggio Emilia approach, Little Nature Wanderlust hosts regular playgroups across Hong Kong as well as seasonal camps where children can engage in edible sensory play, develop their fine motor and gross motor skills and create art and music. The one-hour sessions also include mindfulness and yoga. Casita runs several playgroups at their beautiful Sheung Wan location, and sensory (and very messy!) play and activities are always integrated within their classes.
Spring is another great place for sensory play workshops and activities: their Neurosense program starts from birth will see your little ones discover their dedicated sensory room - they even have a water feature! The Mini Dalton sensory playgroup will have kids getting their hands dirty with play dough, water, sand, shaving cream and much more!
Want to keep your baby or toddler busy at home? These sensory activity kits are guaranteed to keep your little one engaged and stimulated for hours. Not only does Little Nature Wanderlust provide playgroup sessions (and even hosts parties!) but also sells amazing activity kits. Choose from their home activity sets which include reusable activities, story books, a foldable play mat and sensory tray. They even have a construction-themed one! Barefoot Buddies are the creators of the ExploraTray™ (pictured) and are based right here in Hong Kong! Created and designed by a certified teacher, this sensory play essential is basically a multi-use silicone tray perfect for messy play with water, slime or foam, play dough, building blocks, sorting, matching and more.
