Fun Activities for Children

Play is so important for children, it helps them learn how to use their brains, bodies and how to solve problems.

Our senses help us make sense of the world around us and children with sensory sensitivities need a little bit more help.

We have been putting together some sensory activities that that can be easily done at home.

Below you can find activities that will help your child's sensory system:

- Touch

- Sight

- Smell

- Taste

- Sound

- Balance

- Movement

- Fine Motor Skills

- Gross Motor Skills

Reading stories can help children to develop their imagination, build up their vocabulary.

We have been putting together reading sessions but in a little bit different way to support children with sensory difficulties and to make it a little bit more exciting.

          " Stories in the Box"

As the name suggests those are stories hidden in the box. They are pre-recorded by a Family Learning tutor, Sue Tovell.

Most stories have a link to a free downloadable story so you can do something similar at home; all you need is a shoe box.

You can access all stories here.
