Sensory Bottles!

It’s long been established that young children are oriented toward sensory experiences. These experiences lay the foundations for learning other skills, along with fine-tuning motor muscles to boot. Discovery of such essential characteristics is a natural starting point for a myriad of life’s journeys. Generally-speaking, specialists collectively understand that the five key benefits of sensory play are as follows 

1. Sensory play builds nerve connections within the developing brain’s neural pathways, which trigger a child’s inclination for and ability in competing more complex learning tasks
2. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction
3. Sensory play aids in developing and enhancing memory functioning
4. Sensory play is great for calming an anxious or frustrated child
5. Sensory play helps children learn vitally important sensory attributes (hot, cold, sticky, dry, etc)
We are so excited to be celebrating the fun of sensory play this week at AoSL!
