Did you know? Sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathway.
Sensory play contributes to such vital skills in children:
Cognitive Skills - When presented with a material, children need to find a way to work with it. They use their problem-solving and decision-making skills. They learn how to design and engineer.
Language Skills - Children connect to what a word really means when they touch the object that the word describes. Words like soft, squishy, and slimy mean nothing and are just words until the child actually feels them! The language skills here are applied to a cultural setting. Your mother gave you chappati dough when you were young, and her mother before her. You are passing on a culture, and language skills become especially powerful in this setting.
Physical - Fine-motor skills are engaged as children manipulate the materials with their hands.
Creativity - Creativity is encouraged with the open-ended kit, letting them explore their imaginations! Build make-believe animals, break rules and give a lot of encouragement for what your child creates!
This month's kit introduces your kid to open- ended playing, at the same time giving them a direction by providing materials to make it animal themed. Playfoam, included in this kit, is mess free, doesn't dry up and most importantly, won't stick to your carpet unlike Playdough.
This play kit combines sensory play with design skills, and each piece of the kit has a different tactile feel. Build crucial skills by making strong connections to food and family!
