Looking for a Sensory Kit, friends? It can be quite a challenge searching for fun & educational experiences for your children that involve tactile play and allow them to learn and explore on their own volition. In our modern age, children can become obsessed with smartphones and tablets, YouTube clips, and video games. This constant stimulation via screens can be great for a parent, as it allows the child to be more autonomous when playing, and they can keep themselves entertained while you are able to direct your focus and attention to “grown up” matters. However, there are disadvantages and psychological drawbacks when it comes to spending time on a screen as a main source of education and entertainment for your child. It will reduce frequency of social interactions, stunt emotional and cognitive growth, or promote addictions and dependencies that are not beneficial to your child’s development. Additionally, it is tough to monitor these digital influences and filter out negative content.
Sensory Kits are a wonderful way to re-introduce a love of tactile learning while promoting the development of your child’s fine/gross motor skills, problem solving skills, language development, and more. Children learn so much during those small moments when they are exploring and making sense of the physical space around them on their own. As they engage all of their senses (sight, touch, taste, sound, smell), their brain is building cognitive abilities and storing memories of their experiences in their “sensory memory”—a skill that will become useful in later years.
Children can dive into any one of our custom-themed “Buckets of Fun” and lose themselves for hours building their little beach-themed, ballerina-themed, or dinosaur-themed worlds. We also provide custom Sensory Kits that our team builds around a theme of your choice!
