Sensory Activities

March 9, 2029 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm CST

SPECIAL INTEREST (Designed for neurodivergent children ages ten and under, but all ages and abilities are welcome)

A shorter, quieter sensory activity time

Join us on the second Friday of the month from 3-3:30PM for this sensory sensitive program.

Each month, children will have the opportunity to work with a different sensory activity with their caregiver. Come prepared to have some hands-on fun.

Sensory activities offer a way of learning that allows children to build nerve connections, leading to the ability to complete more complex learning tasks. This type of play helps children develop better language and social skills as well as emotional, physical and creative skills. Sensory activities promote critical thinking in children – encouraging them to connect ideas with concrete experiences. They also help develop motor skills by teaching children to coordinate muscle groups as they play. In addition, it can have a calming effect, easing anxiety in children.

Sensory activities are beneficial to all children. However, it’s known to benefit children who have developmental disabilities including autism, sensory integration dysfunction disorder and others.
