SENSES Make Sense: Hands-on Learning Activity

The activity was to collect a variety of edible items such as cookies, chips, fruits etc and set them on a tray. Blindfold the child and let them go across each item. Allow them to feel each item, describe the texture, smell it, taste it and guess what the item is using his or her senses.
The educator asked the specific questions to assist them in identifying the things.Research shows that sensory play activates connections in the brain’s pathways, enhancing a child’s ability to learn and retain information. By utilizing the five senses, children develop skills to solve complex problems, boost self-confidence, strengthen core muscles and agility, expand imagination and improve language.
The activity helped the tiny tots to realize the power of all 5 senses along with their identification.
