Ooey, gooey, slushy and messy! Playing with jelly!
Jelly is great for messy and sensory play as the children can smell it, taste it, and touch it. It’s starts off feeling smooth and then lumpy and then squishy. There are so many different textures to EXPLORE!!!
And it has soooo many benefits:
> Sensory play encourages children to manipulate and mold materials, building up their fine motor skills and coordination.
> Sensory play uses all 5 senses, but the sense of touch is often the most frequent. Toddlers and children process information through their senses. They learn through exploring these.
> Sensory play is process-driven, not product-oriented; it is the purest sense of exploratory learning
> Self-esteem: sensory play offers kids the opportunity for self-expression because there is no right answer and children feel safe to change or experiment with what they are doing.
> Language development and learning new words.
So let’s play, explore & LEARN! Have a lovely weekend!
