Few things cannot be taught by words, they require touching, smelling & feeling. That is why sensory play is very important. This is an integral part of early education. Sensory play includes such activities that stimulate your child’s senses – touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. Experts suggest various benefits of including this in early education. It can help to build language and fine motor skills.
