感官箱有多种功能,可以“干玩”或“湿玩”。将水加入感官箱内,享受水花四溅的乐趣吧!在沐浴的时候或在浴室里都能体会感官箱带来的水中乐趣。

感官箱的好处

“设想儿童的知识由图式构成,基本知识可以形成经验以及作为理解新知识的基础。”

— 法国心理学家Jean Piaget

这种感官游戏能让父母每次更换不同的物品!最重要的是,这些物品并不昂贵,也不复杂,无需上电池。事实上,在没有购买更多物品的情况下也可以升级改造现有的物品。

法国心理学家Jean Piaget表示,“设想儿童的知识由图式构成,基本知识可以形成经验以及作为理解新知识的基础。”

感官箱不仅能让孩子亲手探索,还有以下好处:

  • 激发孩子的感官:感官箱能同时触发孩子的多个感官点。感觉海绵粗糙的质地,摇动水瓶时观察景象并听声音,摸摸面团并将面团扔进容器内,都能激发孩子的感官。
  • 培养实用的生活技能:天哪,简直一团糟!不要担心,您的孩子正在学习因果关系。在翻倒容器后,宝宝学会捡起每个面团。当宝宝会捏住衣夹,用长勺舀卫生纸卷和面团时,可以提高宝宝的精细运动技能。让宝宝大胆的尝试,因为我们希望孩子能适应环境并继续前行。
  • 促进认知发展:当孩子在新的感官箱里摸索各种物品时,会锻炼孩子解决问题的能力、推理和逻辑思维!如果孩子要把所有的衣夹放在密封袋内,或将面团放入空容器内变成摇动器,鼓励孩子勇敢地尝试。
  • 提高语言和沟通技巧:当孩子在探索感官箱时,父母也参与其中,父母可以提出问题,让孩子接触新词汇,开展对话等等!如果孩子想尝尝海绵的味道,您甚至可以问孩子好不好吃,并给孩子解释海绵不能用来吃。孩子在这一过程中提高了语言和沟通技巧!
  • 促进情感发展:独立玩耍能让孩子专注于任务,有助于自我发现。与其他孩子一起探索(或争夺)感官箱里的物品,能让孩子学习社交技能。
  • 增强社交技能和团结:亲子互动或与其他孩子共同探索感官箱能给孩子提供新环境,让孩子学会分享和轮流玩耍。孩子可能会流泪,但这完全是意料之中的!

制作宝宝的第一个感官箱

可以将以下10中常见的家居物品用来给宝宝制作感官箱,这些物品虽然价格实惠,但肯定能激起宝宝的好奇心!

您需要用个容器来装这些物品。在给宝宝使用前,请确保清洁。

Baby’s First Sensory Bin: 10 Household Items that Offers Endless Fun

Babies are intuitively curious.

By engaging their senses and offering them with an opportunity to explore, babies learn to make sense of their world.
The importance of sensory play in early childhood acts as a springboard to nurture a baby’s development in a multitude of ways.
Besides offering store-bought toys, how about creating your baby’s first sensory bin with common household items?

What is a sensory bin?

A sensory bin consists of a container with a mix of fillers that offers tactile experience. There’s no right or wrong way to present a sensory bin. As with children, remember safety should always come first – parents should pick items that are safe and suitable for their child.

Go ahead, and let your child lead the play!

 

For young babies, it is essential to select items that are not choking hazards, and are generally child-friendly. If your child loves putting things in her mouth, be sure to keep sharp objects or tiny items out of the sensory bin.
Sensory bins are versatile and can accommodate ‘dry’ or ‘wet’ play. Add water into the bin and get ready for some splashing fun! There’s always an opportunity to explore the sensory bin during bath times, or in the bathroom for that added water fun.

Benefits of a sensory bin

“envisioned a child’s knowledge as composed of schemas, basic units of knowledge used to organize past experiences and serve as a basis for understanding new ones.
— Jean Piaget, French Psychologist

This sensory play method allows parents to switch around with different fillers every single time! Best of all, the items are not expensive, complicated and do not require batteries. In fact, it’s about upcycling what you already have without buying more.

According to French Psychologist, Jean Piaget, he “envisioned a child’s knowledge as composed of schemas, basic units of knowledge used to organize past experiences and serve as a basis for understanding new ones.”

Learning with simple items that are readily available at home makes it a spontaneous opportunity for your child to observe how these things are also used on a regular day too!

Through this hands-on exploration, here’s what a sensory bin offers young children:

  • Engage their senses: Multi-sensorial points are simultaneously triggered. Feeling the textured sides of a sponge, looking and listening to the sound when shaking a bottle of water, touching pasta and throwing them into a container, are just some ways your little learner is picking up notes!
  • Develop practical life skills: Oh that mess! Don’t worry, your child is learning about cause-and-effect. Baby learns to pick up each pasta after the container was overturned, sharpening his fine motor skills as he discovers about pinching clothes pegs, attempts to scoop toilet roll and pasta with the ladle. It’s all about daring to try, baby, and that’s how we hope to nurture our children to be adapt to situations and keep going.
  • Build cognitive development: Problem-solving skills, reasoning and logic are just some of those areas that your child is working on as he explores the myriad of items in his new sensory bin! Encourage him, if he decides to put all the clothes peg into the resealable bag, or puts pasta into the empty supplement container to turn it into a shaker.
  • Enhance language and communication skills: As parents involve themselves while children are exploring, this leads to asking questions, exposure to new vocabulary, conversations and more! If baby decides to do a taste test with the sponge, you could even ask him if it was yummy – and go on to explain that sponges are not for eating. Thought process in the works!
  • Nurture emotional development: Independent play allows child to focus on a task, contributing to self-discovery. Playing with other children offers them with an opportunity to pick up social skills, by learning to cooperate and play together (or fight over!) with items from the sensory bin.
  • Strengthen social skills and bonds: Through parent-child interaction, or exploring the sensory bin with another child, this presents a new environment to learn about sharing and taking turns. There might be some tears, but it’s entirely expected!

Putting together baby’s first sensory bin

We put together a list of 10 common household items that are affordable, and yet promise to pique baby’s curiosity!

You will need a container to hold these items. Do ensure it is cleaned before offering baby.

 

Putting together baby’s first sensory bin

 


 

    • New sponges
    • Resealable bag or small plastic bag
    • Empty supplement container
    • Toilet roll
    • Pasta
    • Clothes peg
    • Shredded paper and envelopes
    • Ladle and spoons
    • Snack holder
    • Water bottles

A little warning though – be prepared for flying pasta, ladles, clothes pegs, toilet rolls… just about anything within baby’s sight! Well, that is pretty expected and all in a day of sensorial fun to observe mummy and daddy’s reactions too!

How can parents be involved during the sensory bin exploration?

Parents can choose to be facilitators or play together with your child at various stages of play. Babies are naturally curious, and exploration allows them to discover new things through experience. You would be surprised how they make sense of these newly discovered items that their little fingers are getting hold of!

Sensory bins offer a variety of adventures within the indoors, and are great for rainy days, or when the child needs to stay home. But that’s no reason why they should be denied of excitement in an unconventional way, as we work towards raising world-ready children who are ready to take on new experiences! Are you and your baby ready for the invitation to play?

Does your child enjoy playing with sensory bins too? Tell us what’s your child’s favourite household item that he enjoys playing with!
