Created by a local ECE, mother and creative entrepreneur, these I Spy sensory kits will stir up your kids' imaginations. Let them escape into a world of sensory adventures that will help them learn creative independent play.
"Sensory play is rich and full of benefits for children of all ages. It stimulates several of your child's senses. I Spy Sensory kits specifically focus on touch, sight, and movement. While a child may just think they are playing and having fun, I see them as creating, investigating, building, and exploring with endless possibilities
I Spy Sensory kits include homemade play dough that can be manipulated into a child's most imaginative creations while
seamlessly developing their fine-motor skills and building those little hand muscles. These are important first steps towards being able to write with a pencil, for example!
Play dough is known to have a calming effect as you squish, pull, and knead it between your hands. It's one of my favourite things to bring out for my children, to provide me that extra 10 mins I need to finish up making dinner for my family or help calm them down with a short activity before bed time.
Dyed rice provides the ability to explore cause and effect through filling and dumping it out and is great way to encourage open-ended conversations with your child. For example, "What sounds do you hear as the rice falls through your fingers? How does it feel? Tell me more about what you're creating!"
There are so much potential for rich learning opportunities when it comes to sensory play, and I hope to provide you with many examples of activities to promote learning through play with your little one!"
