Benefits of Sensory Play

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!
