Malleable/Sensory Experiments

12th June 2016

Pinterest gave us lots of ideas for “Sensory Play”, it contributes in crucial ways to brain development of children as well as helping them work through their emotions.

The main benefits we found were:

  • Children experience a longer period of fun, playing and exploring the with sensory elements.
  • They were able to use more than one element to create different textures.
  • It provided opportunities for children to learn new vocabulary through play, observing and describing the properties of different material.
  • The textures calmed and soothed the children by providing many opportunities for them to engage in active experiences.
  • It provided a variety of new ideas for open ended materials for children to play and learn.
