5 Benefits of SENSORY PLAY
Improved Brain Pathways - When all of our senses are involved in learning, pathways are created quickly. Allowing children to accomplish complex problems during play.
Enhanced Memory - Playing with our senses allow us to make connections between moments and our senses.
Improvement in all areas of development - Sensory play aids all areas of development; cognitive, language, social, problem solving, and motor skills.
Hands on learning - Children learn about different sensory inputs such as sound (loud and soft), touch (smooth and rough), sight (near and far), smell (sweet and sour), and taste (salty and sweet).
Helps anxious and nervous children - Sensory activities allow children to refine their thresholds for different sensory information helping their brain to create stronger connections to process and respond to sensory information.
