Sensory play is so important for young children. They are sensory creatures, exploring and learning about the world through their eyes, hands, mouths, ears, and noses.
By offering our children a rich choice of sensory materials we are supporting this development, and providing fun, engaging, hands-on learning opportunities.
Sensory invitations to play are so adaptable. They’re open-ended for creative play and linked to structured academic learning. They’re perfect for a group of children as each child can engage with the activity as is appropriate for them, depending on their age and abilities.
The benefits of themed sensory play weeks
A themed-week lets children make connections between on idea and another, one material and another, one experience and another.
With a range of linked activities, children are able to compare and contrast, see how things are the same and what’s different – young scientists and creatives in the making.
Coming back to a theme over consecutive days gives time and space for ideas to brew, and the repetition helps children find depth and meaning.
