You may be wondering, what exactly is sensory play, and why is it important for my child?
Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates a young child's senses (touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing), as well as anything which engages movement and balance(1).
Why is this beneficial?
Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks.
Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction.
This type of play aids in developing and enhancing memory.
Sensory play is great for calming an anxious or frustrated child.
This helps children learn sensory attributes (hot, cold, sticky, dry)
