What is sensory play?

Sensory play is playing to stimulate your child’s senses. Children’s brains are rapidly growing. Engaging their senses through play is learning, even better it's making learning fun at a very young age. I call that a win-win! 

Sensory play promotes language development, fine motor skills, independent and imaginative play. Engaging multiple senses helps children to explore and understand the world around them in an interactive and hands on way. 

Sensory play has been shown to help children focus.  Children who may not be engaged in other toys might actually LOVE sensory play.  Pouring, scooping, moving things with their hands, feeling the different textures, keeps them engaged and busy. They can be creative, problem solve, concentrate and be in control of what's happening inside the bin.

***Sensory should always be supervised with children under 3 and/or with children who put things in their mouth.
