🎄Christmas🎄Sensory👁👅🖐🏼 Play For Kids🧒🏽
Sensory play is a great way to stimulate a child’s senses - build cognitive skills and influence how your child learns about their world.
What is Sensory Play?
In essence, sensory play includes play that engages a child's senses. This includes touch, smell, sight, sound and taste. Sensory play also covers movement, balance, and spatial awareness.
When a child is born, their senses aren’t fully developed. They only mature over time as babies, toddlers, and preschoolers explore the sensory world around them. Each new experience they have with a different sense builds nerve connections that grow the architecture of their brain.
Sensory play encourages learning through exploration, curiosity, problem solving and creativity. It helps to build nerve connections in the brain and encourages the development of language and motor skills. There are many benefits that may go unnoticed, such as the development of abilities to focus and block out distractions.
