All About Sensory Play

This week we are going to begin talking about different types of play that are excellent for development, especially in the area of early language. ¬†Since many readers have requested more information about sensory play and language, I thought that would be a great place to start! I have some amazing guest posters coming on to talk about different aspects of sensory play and how they have used it to enrich the lives of their children, and I can’t wait to share what they have to say!

I have written quite a bit about sensory play here at Twodaloo, so I thought I would round those posts up for you to catch up on before I throw a bunch of new stuff your way. I’ll cover what it is and why it’s so important, how to use it for language building, and how to get started with sensory materials at home. And then I’ll meet you back here in the morning for our first guest poster- ya’ll are going to LOVE her!
