Discover the joy of sensory play and outdoor fun at the Sandy Shores Kitchen & Café event on Friday, July 5, 2024, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at Johnson’s Beach in Barrie. This event is specially designed for children aged 2-8 and their families. Join us for a morning of creative, educational activities that will engage your children’s imaginations and connect them with nature.

Engaging Sensory Play Activities

The event features a unique mud/sand kitchen where kids can get their hands dirty and create imaginary dishes. Sensory play is not just fun; it’s crucial for children’s development, allowing them to explore different textures, practice fine motor skills, and ignite their creativity.

Introducing the Driftwood Portable Sensory Garden

New this year, the Driftwood Portable Sensory Garden offers an innovative way for children to interact with plants. This garden integrates live, edible plants into playtime, allowing kids to experience a variety of textures and scents. It’s an excellent opportunity for children to learn about plants and their importance in our ecosystem while having fun.

The Educational Benefits of Sensory Play

Sensory play is more than just an activity; it’s an essential part of childhood development. Through sensory play, children develop cognitive skills, enhance their motor abilities, and learn to engage with their environment. The Sandy Shores Kitchen & Café provides a safe and stimulating environment where kids can learn and grow through play.

City Partners Enhancing the Experience

The event is supported by city partners, including the Barrie Public Library and the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority. These organizations contribute valuable resources and expertise, enriching the experience for all attendees. Their involvement ensures a well-rounded and educational event for the community.
