Studies show that sensory play can have a calming effect on children. Sensory play is also a great way to encourage fine motor skill practice and creativity. In our sensory table series, these play opportunities help develop reading comprehension skills as children retell a story and bring it to life using thematic items at the table. They are great for both home and classroom learning environments!
