Christmas is the time of year that most look forward to, it’s the time of year we can all spend time with family and friends and give gifts. However, it can be a challenging time to find suitable gifts for kids who experience sensory overload. Lot’s of toys are not so helpful because of the noise and lights the produce. At Sensory Learning Supplies, we aim to try to make everyone’s Christmas a memorable one.
Christmas is a wonderful season. We all often associate certain smells like gingerbread baking, pine needles from trees or something triggered from a previous family moment, textures and sounds with this time of year. So it is a fantastic reminder and chance for us to put more thought into the impact that senses can have on others.
To help improve your child’s fine motor skills this year, there are several techniques, games and toys that can be used. These include the use of visual aids, wooden toys and other educational resources supplied by Sensory Learning Supplies. For example;
We also have a variety of fidget packs that are a very popular and fun way of improving fine motor skills.
Some children often struggle to communicate their needs and feelings effectively. It’s important to have methods in place to help children with underdeveloped verbal, comprehension and processing times.
At Sensory Learning Supplies, we have a big range of communication aids for both the home and the classroom that can help children to express themselves and to help them understand you and the world around them.
Rainbow poppets are colourful and playful visual aids that can help a child with coordination, as a possible communication device and a fun toy to develop fine motor skills.

Sensory play may be a popular phrase at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that it is just a passing phase. We believe that as more and more research continues to come out that highlights the benefits of sensory play, it will only increase in prevalence among early childhood educators and parents.
Sensory play is any activity that involves engaging the senses. Generally speaking, the more senses you can include, the better.
Christmas is a time when we should all be able to enjoy the lights and the festive gifts.
Kids learn about themselves and the world around them through their senses and feelings. When the senses are engaged, neural pathways in the brain are being created. These neural pathways are what will help your child in learning throughout their life.
Another benefit to sensory play could be considered the most important one, it’s really fun and exciting.
