Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which enables young children to complete more complex learning tasks.
Sensory play also supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction.
Lastly, sensory play aids in developing and enhancing memory. For this activity, we interacted with “planets” via this fun sensory bin!
Students manipulated the planets, along with black rice, star confetti, and tweezers. They ran the rice through their fingers and tried picking up the confetti with their tweezers.
In addition to this, your little ones enjoyed creating different story lines for the different planets touched. Lastly, they laughed and had fun with their friends!
