This Artist’s Sensory Play Setups Are Amazing

For artist Morgan Latzko of The Scott Cottage, sensory play is as much fun for her as it is for her son.

Latzko is a photographer, creative producer, and mom to a 2-year-old boy. She created The Scott Cottage during the pandemic to share her journey discovering sensory play art. Instructions are posted on her blog, and pre-made kits are available to purchase on Etsy.

At a time when we’re supposed to avoid handling objects and surfaces, sensory play allows her son to explore the world through touch. Q can identify a range of colors—from teal to magenta. He also learned the alphabet and how to count through exposure in sensory play. Pictured: homemade play dough. Morgan Latzko
