With sensory play there’s always much more going on than meets the eye. Sensory play is not only fun but it always encourages your littles ones to explore and investigate independently.
These activities also support children in the development of their own method of observing, forming hypotheses, experimenting and making conclusions. All in all it’s just a super amazing way to really get those little brains ticking.
So, What is Sensory Play?
We only have 5 senses right? Wrong! We have so many different senses that can be explored through sensory play. Picking up toys and feeling their texture is often what most people think sensory play is, but it is so much more diverse than that. Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates your little ones senses, eg. touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing, movement, balance and spatial awareness. The possibilities are endless!
