Sensory Play in Birmingham

by BecSorby (follow)
Sensory play is a fun and often messy way for children to learn!

Play and mess are how babies and children learn about the world around them. Sensory play is one of the best forms of play for development and has been shown to improve cognitive skills, fine motor skills and social skills.

If you’re not familiar with sensory play, it is basically any type of play that uses the senses to learn. It is often called ‘messy play’ and can be anything from finger painting and blowing bubbles, to playing with sand or water. Sensory play sessions are great for letting the little ones get messy while learning, avoiding the mess in your own home and allowing you and the kids to meet new people. Here is where you can find sensory play in Birmingham.
