Our children need a sensory lifestyle; meaning days enriched with opportunities to get sensory input. This is not only fun for them but is a valuable component of healthy development. We can do this by having games, toys, and activities at their fingertips that provide sensory input while also serving to strengthen their motor, cognitive, and visual skills. As an Amazon affiliate, I am excited to share my favorites and an easy way to purchase.
