Sensory play helps build nerve connections in the brain. It helps build many skills in children. Language skills, problem solving skills, fine & gross motor skills and even social skills.
This is the reason when my oldest turned 2 I had my handy husband build 2 amazing & beautiful sensory tables. These tables were a few of the items I was most sad to leave when we decided to become expats. (We didn’t move with furniture. Another story for another day.)
Thankfully I recently discovered Elbirg Sensory Play. A local business here in the UAE. While they are located in Dubai & we are in Abu Dhabi they deliver and even accept cash on delivery! (Major win!) When I began looking into their items I knew they would enjoy each sensory box, but they would LOVE LOVE LOVE the Mermaid Sensory Box. So, I ordered it last week and surprised them with it today.
Before I gave them the surprise I told them I needed them to get their “mermaid on”. All about dress up in this house!
We also needed to read books about mermaids. They picked out their Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales Book by Miles Kelly. Disney Princess The Little Mermaid, a Little Golden Book. And we read about Annette Kellerman, “the Australian Mermaid” in Kate Pankhurst Fantastically Great Women Who Worked Wonders.
After reading, the surprising went down & it was AWESOME! They had a blast playing with the Mermaid Sensory Box for hours today. I loved hearing their imaginations go crazy and playing so well together! It made this mama’s heart burst with joy! (Some fighting about how the stories should go might have taken place from time to time.) Just keeping it real! And speaking of real, you need need these sensory boxes FOR REAL!
