What Is Hands On Play?
Engaging the minds of young children with Hands On Play!
Hands on play is all around us! Especially for children from birth to age 5! What ever your child can get his hands on to explore and discover is hands on play. His little mind is not so little. It is a sponge soaking up all the experiences around him. There is so much to see and do these first five years. Hands on play can happen indoors building forts or out doors on a nature walk. Paint, play dough, sensory bins, mirror play, water play and science experiments help your child learn valuable skills in the form of literacy, communication, social/emotional awareness as well as fine motor and practical life skills that will come in handy later on. Hands on play creates an imagination and a foundation to build on for years to come. Look around your house, you have it all already, create a fun invitation to play today!
