With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I’ve rounded up my favourite Valentine’s Day Sensory Play Activities from some of my favourite bloggers below.

Valentine’s Day Slime and Gloop

How pretty is this Pink Glitter Slime from The Moments at Home and I love how Mama Papa Bubba added her slime to a Valentine’s Sensory Tray. Gloop (or oobleck) never fails to amaze me, Rainy Day Mum throws in some spelling practice to her Valentines Oobleck whilst Inspiration Laboratories freezes it with this Valentine Sensor Play Frozen Oobleck

Valentine’s Day Playdough

Valentine's Day Playdough

We make playdough for nearly every occasion I can think of, any excuse to make up a fresh batch and I’m there. Our pink sparkly strawberry scented playdough always makes the whole house smell amazing.


Why not add some fun maths to your playdough set up with this one from Nurture Store or Adventures and Play has an amazing 2 Ingredient Soft Playdough for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day Science Activities

Adding some science to your play is a great way to add in some fun learning to sensory play. This Fizzy Science Experiment from Nurture Store looks so easy. I think my Little Tots would be amazed at this Fizzy Valentine Playdough from Inspiration Laboratories and these Frozen Hearts from Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds are a really simple way to introduce science to toddlers.

Valentine’s Day Sensory Bins

Sensory Bins are so fun to put together and my Little Tots play with them for hours on end. Our Valentine’s Sensory bin is now 3 years old and still going strong.


This Valentine’s Day Sensory Box from Learning and Exploring Through Play has lots of textures to explore as does this Valentine’s Themed Sensory Bin from Fun With Mama, whilst this sensory activity in a bowl from JDaniel4s Mom has a fun alternative to rice.

Valentine’s Sensory Play with Water

Water play is always a hit with my Little Ones, this Valentine’s Sensory Soup from Learning and Exploring Through Play looks so inviting as does Things to Share and Remember Valentine’s Water Sensory Play. Or for babies this Slow Falling Hearts Sensory Bottle is perfect for them to explore from Rhythms of Play.

Valentine’s Day Shaving Cream Activities

Shaving cream is such a fun medium for sensory play, it feels super soft and is great for little hands to explore. We added some red paint and hearts to our Valentine’s Day Messy Play for Teachwire and Crafty Kids at Home added ice to create this Messy Ice Hearts.

Capri Plus 3 turned theirs into a craft with this Shaving Cream Hearts with Candy Sprinkles.

Do you’re little ones enjoy sensory and messy play? What’s their favourite? You can find all our sensory play activities here.
