Sensory activities are a great way to stimulate children’s curiosity, creativity and learning. They involve exploring different textures, colours, shapes, sounds and smells using a variety of materials and objects. Sensory activities can help children develop their fine motor skills, language skills, cognitive skills and social skills. They can also support children’s emotional well-being by providing opportunities for relaxation, self-expression and fun.
Over the last few weeks, children in Owls have been interested in creating structures using various materials. We have also been exploring how we can use our whole bodies and tools to explore and investigate all the sensory activities that surround us.
