Elements: A Sensory experience

for ages 2-5



Elements is a unique sensory experience designed for ages 2-5 and their caregivers. It is a drop-in program (with a caregiver), available only on weekdays from 9 am - 2pm. Each Elements session will run for about a month, and will feature age appropriate activities centered around a theme, designed by an experienced educator. Examples of themes include scents/smells, liquids, colors, wind and more!

September is Scents!

The theme for September is scents! Activities will feature over 33 different scents- from familiar fruits, like mango and strawberry, to tree smells like cedar and forest pine, to autumn smells like campfire and marshmallows! Stations include scented sensory bins; a “guess the scent” game; a scented playdoh station where you can “design your own sundae;” matching games and even a design your own scented picture station!

What is the philosophy behind ELEMENTS?

Children learn best by doing and by exploring the world around them. Science exploration begins from even the youngest ages, when curious minds conduct “experiments” and “test hypotheses” about their world. Caregivers serve as important guides to help children discover their world, and to encourage them to ask questions and form hypotheses. The stations are thoughtfully designed for caregivers and their children to form hypotheses, test their hypotheses and draw conclusions based on their findings. Even young children can be scientists at Genius Gems!
