Benefits of Sensory Play
Babies and Toddlers can benefit so much from sensory play. Sensory play stimulates any of your child’s senses and developed their brain while influencing how your child learns about the world. Other reasons sensory play is beneficial for children include the following. Sensory play:
- helps to build nerve connections in the brain
- encourages the development of motor skills
- supports language development
- encourages ‘scientific thinking’ and problem solving
- can involve mindful activities which are beneficial for all children
Babies develop and learn to make new connections in their brain when they play. Sensory play therefore supports language development and helps babies to learn more about the world around them. Language development is the foundation of all further education and learning going forward and Babies can enjoy simple sensory play such as touching different objects and surfaces and hearing how different materials create varied sounds.
Toddlers also love to explore their environment through their senses and delight in discovering their own ability. A sensory blanket like the Soft Plush Cotton Blanket brings the environment closer to support emotional regulation and adjustment for your child. Through sensory play, your child can learn to block out the unimportant noise and focus on tasks that are important.
Comfort or Traditional Objects
Transitional Objects in the entire SnuggleSense© range assists in emotional development and adjustment for babies and toddlers alike. A comfort or transitional object like a security blanket is an item used to provide psychological comfort. This is especially useful in unusual situations, or at bedtime for children. These objects may take the form of a blanket, a stuffed animal, or a favourite toy, and toddlers may give their love-object a special nickname.
Because every Soft Pink Floral Plush Sensory Blanket is handmade, some shape and appearance variations may occur. Each blanket is approximately 70x70cm big and has 9 different textures for sensory development.
