The best way for someone to learn is when all their senses are involved so their brain gets lot of information. Sensory play is any activity that stimulates all of your child's sense so they use scientific methods of discovery. A big part of development comes from freely exploring one's environment, that's why it's important to give your children sensory play activities. Here are a few ways you can encourage sensory play, but don't stop here! Look more on the web to find some others.
1. Play Dough
Play Dough is fun, but you never seem to have enough to make anything big. Fortunately, it’s easy to make at home out of water, flour, and salt. Create a generous amount of several different colors and encourage your kids to build anything they like. Show them how to stick it together to make colorful objects.
2. Sensory Tub
A sensory tub is a simple ideas designed to give your child a plethora of options. In a plastic tub or bin, include a variety of objects. Some parents like to center the objects on a theme that the child likes so he or she will be inclined to explore. Your child will find the different textures and colors appealing, develop his/her fine motor skills, and play creatively.
3. Sensory Bath
Similar to the sensory tub, the sensory bath incorporates a variety of items, but in water. Fill your tub with a few inches of water and add a variety of objects that your child wouldn’t normally come in contact with, like filled water balloons or small rocks. Let her play with these items and interact with the water.
4. Jell-O Finger Paints
These easy-to-make finger paints are non-toxic and safe to eat. Basically you’ll make watered-down Jell-O that can be spread all over and cleaned up easily. If you make several flavors, you’ll fill the room with lovely fruit smells, too. Offer your child brushes or encourage him to use his fingers. Don’t worry if he spreads it all over; that’s part of the fun.
Using cornstarch and water, you can create your own quicksand! Quicksand is simply sand that has been infused with so much water than it behaves like a liquid. You can make quicksand in a bucket or tray, or fill a small kiddie pool (but monitor your children while they play). Let them slosh, splash and construct with the odd substance.Zippyz
Like most new moms, Lisa had been up night after night changing her newborn son's diaper. She was so exhausted she could barely function, let alone match up the tiny snaps on her baby's pajamas.
Frustrated by endless mis-snapping and re-snapping, Lisa found zippered pajamas, and thought her problems had been solved. That night when she unzipped her son's pajamas, he started to cry from the shock of cold air. Although less time consuming, Lisa hated that she had to expose her baby's entire body with the zipper. She felt her baby's comfort should come first and yearned for the perfect footed pajama, which was both soft and cozy for her baby and hassle-free for mommy.
