Fall Sensory Bottles

The kids enjoyed making sensory bottles for their class! Did you know that sensory play provides several benefits to children? These benefits include: strengthening fine motor skills, building strong connections to the brain, fostering language development, and it can initiate scientific thinking and problem solving.  Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates your young child's senses: touch, smell, taste, movement, balance, sight and hearing.


Here are some links to articles with ideas to integrate sensory play into daily routine:
