Sensory play and loose parts provide children a beautiful invitation to create, encourage imagination through play and the development of fine motor skills. The possibilities are endless!
While using dough and loose parts together, children will:
- Use different senses
- Problem Solve
- Work on their fine motor skills while picking up small items, and by pinching, squishing, and manipulating dough with their hands
- Build language as you help identify objects, actions, and concepts (in and out, soft and hard, colors, scents, and numbers)
- Calm themselves (playing with sensory objects, like dough, can have a calming, soothing effect on children)
Teach! Learn! Enjoy!
