Summary:


Sensory play is a great way to engage your young child’s senses as their little brains and skills are developing. It allows them to tangibly interact with the world around them in a safe and stimulative manner. I personally love using sensory play to engage them in hands on learning, particularly when the real world focus of our study may be otherwise out of reach… just like the constellations!

Summary:


Smashing moon rocks is a fine motor activity, so children are working on small muscle movements. While hitting the moon rocks with the hammer, they are practicing controlling their wrists and hands, while also making their muscles stronger! Fine motor skills are very important to work on during the preschool years because it helps prepare children to have better scissor skills and handwriting in the future.
