What are sensory bins good for?
Sensory bins, sensory bottles, sensory play are great for learning, having fun while receiving some amazing benefits.
When your children play with a sensory bin, they can receive a calming effect. They can ignite and spark up imaginative play.
Sensory play allows for children to connect and engage by way of stimulation and building of nerve connections within your child’s brain which in turn allows children to learn new skills!
How incredibly amazing is that!
Is water play sensory?
Yes. It allows for creativity, imagination and self expression of your child.
Think of it like this..
Close your eyes.
Pretend you are hearing water being played with.
Does that stimulate your senses?
Now, touch the water.
It’s really soft but different and not air. It’s stimulating your sense of touch.
It’s enjoyable and great for learning about the world around you.
It encourages so many aspects of oneself just by connecting with it.
When a sense is being engaged, such as in this example (water to touch and water to hearing) neural pathways are essentially being created which in turn is helpful for future skills!
So, yes, if you’d like to learn more about this subject, I’ve created an entire post on sensory play.
