Family. Fall. FUN
It’s pumpkin season and for us that means MESSY play – YAY!
Reasons why sensory play is beneficial:
- Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks.
- Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction.
- This type of play aids in developing and enhancing memory
- Sensory play is great for calming an anxious or frustrated child
TAKE action – Go out now and buy a massive pumpkin and start: chopping, hacking, deseeding, mashing, squeezing, squashing and crushing!
