Sensory Balls enhance sensory stimulation:
When children hold a sensory ball, they appreciate the nubbly texture. When they squeeze one, they can feel the rubber stretch and contract beneath their fingertips. Sensory balls are also effective in massage stimulation. Softly rolling textured sensory balls on a child’s back or feet heightens sensory awareness. Sensory balls are favoured by teething babies who love to chew on safe, sensory balls.
Sensory Balls enhance gross motor skills:
From their first months to years later children improve both fine and gross motor skills with sensory balls. Infants crawl toward sensory balls enhancing eye/hand coordination, use muscles to reach a sensory ball, then grasp and hold on tight! As children grow, they enthusiastically squeeze, roll, throw and kick sensory balls.
Sensory Balls enhance socialisation:
Young children interact with others as they roll a sensory ball across the floor to mum and dad, grandpa or grandma. Young children eagerly toss sensory balls to playmates.
