Sensory play encourages children to explore and investigate, making independent choices. The benefits are endless with sensory play, brain development, language development, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving, cognitive growth and social interaction are some of many benefits.
Through sensory play children are able to focus on particular activities, objects and textures. For example, children may find it difficult to play with other children when there is too much going on in their environment with other noises or distractions.
Benefits of Sensory Play listed:
Sensory play can include any activity that stimulates a young child's senses of touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing along with anything which engages movement and balance. Sensory play is only limited by ones own imagination.
The easiest way to get children to engage their senses is by playing outside with nature, it's full of colour and texture.
