Children learn through exploration and play, and they are at their best with learning when they are able to engage their senses. Sensory play helps kids practice and develop cognitive, emotional, physical, creative, and language skill sets. It also helps build connections between these different regions of the brain, resulting in stronger pathways and supporting continued brain growth.
In short, when you're a kid - PLAY is WORK. And it's important work at that.
Creating opportunities for this kind of sensory play at home is easy using items you most likely already have. Download our free PLAY IDEA printable now (click on image to save)!
