Natural & Sensory Treasures
So many of children's toys can tend to be made from plastic and therefore lack essential sensory feedback and interest. They also tend to be designed to be used by children in a particular way, thereby restricting children's opportunities for open-ended creative play where there are no right or wrong ways of using the plaything. Sensory experiences are essential for children's growing brains and also help children discover more about themselves and the world around them. This in turn helps children feel safer to explore and enables them to develop a positive disposition to the environment. You only have to watch children's limitless play with the boxes that presents come in to see the value and appeal fo open--ended playthings for children.
All of these natural items have been selected for their interest, texture and overall sensory appeal. From the whole dried oranges which can be objects of awe and wonder to the chunky cinnamon sticks, coconut shell triangles and shells, children will enjoy exploring these natural treasures - some unusual and others familiar, sparking questions and problem solving as they do so. Being natural objects without extensive safety testing all items should be offered to 3 year olds plus with careful adult supervision to avoid potential choking hazards.
