Our kids were having so much fun with this sensory play activity!
So long we do not mind to be messy, the children will be able to get loads of fun and new experiences!
Sometimes it is really about willingness =)
We know that young children are oriented toward sensory experiences. From birth, children have learned about the world by touching, tasting, smelling, seeing, and hearing. Sensory play also contributes in crucial ways to brain development. It is like the food for the brain. Stimulating the senses sends signals to children’s brains that help to strengthen neural pathways important for all types of learning. For example, as children explore sensory materials, they develop their sense of touch, which lays the foundation for learning other skills, such as identifying objects by touch, and using fine-motor muscles.
Do not rob your child's play time with a tablet or a TV. Every simple sensory play leads your child to a new experience and a new development.
Sensory play is also a great time you can spend with your child, building a bond or a relationship with each other.
It is worth a try =)
