Sensory Play for Babies
Sensory play helps children to develop their physical skills; sensory play introduces actions such as shaping, scooping and moulding. These skills require multiple muscles to work together which helps a child’s fine motor skills.
Sensory play also helps with children’s cognitive development. When children engage in sensory play they learn new things about different objects, they learn about new feelings such as cold, wet and sticky. This helps a child’s brain to recognize and sort out different things and different sensations.
It also helps to develop social skills as children will communicate with each other and learn how to share and how to recognize another person’s feelings.
