Using our senses is one of the most natural ways we explore and make sense of the world around us. Sensory play is any activity that stimulates any one of our senses – sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell, as well as motion and balance.
In addition to being fun, sensory play allows a person, whether an adult or a child, to experiment with objects and textures on their own terms and to investigate, explore and create. Sensory play can support cognitive growth, language development, social skills and gross and fine motor skills. It can also promote the development of the scientific skills of observation, forming hypotheses and drawing conclusions. Sensory experiences play a crucial role in brain development and brain exercise.
Sensory play, in fact any type of play, also gives parents and caregivers an opportunity to connect. Playing is more fun when shared.
