These bright & colourful transparent shells are ideal for children’s sensory play. Sensory play encourages children to learn, develop and grow whilst they’re having fun. Children are encouraged to explore, investigate, and develop their ideas through sensory play. The use of open-ended resources promotes exploration and investigation in sensory play too. Sensory play aids cognitive development, the more senses that are involved the better! Creativity and imagination is developed through new ways of thinking. Often social skills are built through teamwork, and language and communication skills improve. Perseverance is developed as children keep exploring and investigating their surroundings, continually building on their understandings. The benefits of sensory play are incredible. Who knows where their discoveries will lead them!
