Baby sensory classes aren’t for everyone. I found our local class too busy and loud. But, providing your baby with plenty of sensory opportunities helps their development. So they shouldn’t be overlooked.
Luckily, there are free baby sensory videos you can watch online. It’s one silver lining to come from the Coronavirus outbreak and it means your baby won’t miss out.
Here are 5 videos you can use at home. They’re perfect if you can’t make it to your usual sensory class or don’t enjoy going to them.
Bloom Baby Classes
Bloom baby classes are currently offering free online classes via Facebook. All you have to do is join their group!
They’re also offering support for parents during the current pandemic.
Sophie Pickles Baby Sensory Videos
Sophie Pickles free baby sensory videos can be watched live via Facebook or on Youtube.
Her videos include singing, Makaton signs and information about baby development.
Check out the latest video below.
The Baby Explorers website has themed baby sensory clips. Baby Boogie Disco and Swinging Safari are some examples.
You have to pay a small fee to either rent or download the videos but the Teddy Bear’s Picnic video is free!
The website also lists the things you will need before you start the video. So you can prepare beforehand.
Baby College has two free baby sensory videos at the bottom of their website.
These are ‘taster’ videos lasting 10-15 minutes. They involve singing, stories, and movement.
There’s also an option to pay for the live sensory sessions they are running via Zoom.
Baby Sensory creates live videos via Zoom. Although you have to pay, you can use the Baby Sensory songs for free on Youtube.
Which will help you to create your own sensory activities at home.
I hope the 5 videos have inspired you to create your own sensory sessions at home.

It’s best to watch the videos beforehand so you can focus on quality interactions with your baby.
If you are following along, be careful not to overstimulate your baby with screen time.
