Toddler Sensory Experiences
Sensory Adventures: The Magic of Toddler Sensory Experiences
Every sight, sound, and texture offers your toddler a magical world of sensory delight and wonder and contributes to their future learning and development.
Exploration and Problem-solving
The texture of a soft puppet, instruments that make different sounds, books that open up a world of imagination and wonder, and stacking and building toys that invite exploration and problem-solving skills will lead your toddler’s learning and development forward.
Speech and Language Development
Puppets offer rich opportunities for speech and language development, imagination, social-emotional enrichment, and fine motor skill enhancement. Your toddler can put on a puppet show with animated movements and language. The puppet can be happy or sad, cheeky or shy, play hide-and-seek or bring a new dimension to a favourite story or activity.
When your toddler explores shape sorters, stacking cups, and threading buttons, they learn about colour, shape, size, and volume. These materials teach your toddler important thinking and problem-solving skills as well as hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness.
Sensory experiences play a crucial role in the development of fine and gross motor skills. For example, pouring water from one stacking cup to another, making a tower of cotton reels, and posting shapes in a shape sorter require hand-eye coordination and fine movements of the hand. Throwing and catching a beach ball involves gross body movements, good visual skills, and hand dexterity. All these things lead to skills such as dressing and later writing.
Emotional Regulation and Relaxation
Activities such as music-making with instruments can alleviate tension and frustration and help your toddler develop healthy stress coping mechanisms. Cuddling up and sharing a book together can be extremely calming and soothing for your toddler, help regulate their emotions, and find relaxation at the end of a busy day.
Sensory experiences create a wonderful opportunity for you to interact and build strong parent-child bonds with your toddler. They also foster security, trust, and joy, and create memories that last a lifetime.
