If young children do not have opportunity to explore their world with all their senses, and make a mess as they do so, this can impact on their cognitive and language development. These sessions aim to give children the opportunity for multi-sensory experiences.
Experiencing and sensing different textures is great for stimulating brain development. Sensory play offers a controlled way of introducing textures and allowing children to explore. Sensory play can also build hand-eye coordination, fine & gross motor skills and develop hand strength.
During the sensory play intervention it is important that the adult models what the activity involves and describe the sensations to the child before they decide if they want to experience it for themselves.
