-Sensory Paint Bags
Sensory painting is such a fun way to involve the fine motor skills of a child with their learning. Sensory play helps children make connections and learn about subject matter in a fun and hands-on way.
Paint is added to a zip lock bag, and Mini Beez can use their fingers to squish the paint around.
Messy play like finger painting is important to every child's development. It helps the body and brain integrate information, such as that needed for later spatial concepts, math and language. Finger painting is also a most relaxing and creative way to express feelings.
Sensory painting is a great way for children to explore, learn and develop through sensory play. When children can feel the cool, squishy texture of the paint and experiment with color and patterns, it encourages their creativity. It's also a good way for children to express emotions.
Research has shown that toys like building blocks are particularly beneficial for children between the ages of 18 months to 3 years old because they help younger children master motor skills, develop cognitive skills, especially simple problem-solving skills, and foster spatial intelligence.
-Mom and Me Reading Area
Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word.
