Wait, what is "sensory play"?
Children start to try and make sense of the world from the moment that they are born, and they use their senses to try and figure it all out. That’s probably why you have caught your baby chewing on their little hands or your toddler putting foreign objects in their mouth – sigh. Sensory play is a simple yet valuable way of engaging children in activities that will heighten their sense of sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing all whilst enriching their learning experiences. Sensory play is an early and crucial step in the brain development process, even as adults we learn at our best and retain more information when we engage our senses.
Sooo is it actually important?
YES! There are some impressive benefits of sensory play and there is always much more going on than meets the eye, so let me quickly break them down for you.
Brain development and cognitive growth
Fine-tuning motor skills
Awareness and adaptability
Problem solving skills
Foundational math and science concepts
Responsibility and self-control
Eases and helps to overcome sensory processing issues
I've been navigating my way through this crazy thing called motherhood for 2 or so years now and I like to think I have achieved a distinction in the degree of ‘chaos coordination’. I am a doting wife and a mother to two busy boys.
When my eldest was born, I started to really take note of, and research his development. I was (and still am) obsessed with his milestones and education, so helping him along became a fast hobby of mine. I was researching, cooking, playing, teaching, photographing and organising my days like a freaking superhero. I was #mumgoals.
Fast forward to baby number two… My spaghetti food colouring days were loooong behind me and I was riding shotgun on the hot mess express! How the hell can I entertain and educate my toddler whilst nursing my newborn? I didn’t have the energy to prepare activities and the iPad was getting a fair workout. I went on the hunt to find a sensory box and gain an hour or so back into my day. What should have been a simple Google search became a day long mission. All I could find were subscription boxes or singular activity bins which were way to exyyy.
That is when My Busy Bin was born. My third baby. No lock in subscriptions or management of direct debits and you can choose your activity based on your child’s age and interests without the need to organise the tribe and leave the house. A gift from one Mum to another. No fancy packaging, just love, care and a lot of passion and research.
So, let your little one take the lead, explore, play and learn whilst you finally enjoy a hot cup of coffee or get some work done, bond with your babe or simply have some plain old fun with your kids!!!
