Games and sensory play strengthen motor skills and social skills
Play and games bring activities to urban spaces, schools and playgrounds, which can be shared. Sometimes it is a single item of play equipment that encourages group play. This could be a table tennis table in the school playground, where it’s easy to grab a bat and play with friends or some of the children from the younger year groups.
Or it could be musical instruments in playhouses. Here, children can create their own sounds and on the triangle or gong, and play together without words.
Playing with sounds and music stimulates the development of the senses, which are especially important for children in the 0-6 age group.
