The Importance of Sensory Play in Your child’s Development

Sensory play plays a major part in a child’s development and starts from the time of birth and continues throughout as they develop their senses to explore the world through various forms from their sense of smell, touch, sight, hearing and finally taste.

Babies you will often see touching things or put things in their mouths or with a child who is spinning round and getting dizzy but will do it over and over again.

As parents many of you understand the importance of sensory play and want to encourage this whilst making it fun and engaging, by stimulating them you are helping to develop these keys areas which are social, emotional, cognitively, linguistically, and physical these are all covered just through play, and often with the very basic things from around the house like a saucepan and a wooden spoon.

The use of senses in turn helps the brain to develop so when a sense is engaged neural pathways are created and this aids further learning such as problem solving and creative thinking.

Sensory play is often thought of for babies and toddlers but that’s not the case it’s also vital for preschoolers and school age children, its great if you can let your child use as many senses as possible when they are playing this helps then to learn more from the activity and to retain more information this continues when they become adults too so it’s important.

So why not dig into your cupboards and see what fun things you can do with your children let them make a mess and just enjoy your time and be sure to capture some of those precious moments.
