Sensory Play is a great way to stimulate your child’s senses of touch, sight, smell, hearing, and tasting. Sensory play facilitates learning that helps your young child make sense of the world around them. When you include sensory play in your child’s life, you can help develop them cognitively, socially, emotionally, linguistically, physically, and creatively. Sensory play for preschoolers is especially important because preschoolers are at a crucial age where their brains are like sponges, and providing them with hands-on activities can really help develop their brain in a healthy and beneficial way.
We love sensory play in our house, and we especially love when it’s messy! My sensory play motto is “The messier it is, the more they are learning”! Remember, there is nothing a little water can’t wash off. So let your kids get as messy as they want, because it’s through this unrestricted play that they are learning TONS of things about their world!
