Sensory Activity Board
Sensory Activity Board provides multiple ways for very young children to experiment with light, sound, and vibration. The dial beneath the heart controls the speed of its beat. Turn to the left to decrease the speed. Or to the right to increase it. Push the sliding buttons up or down-one at a time or together in any order to change the color of the flower and to hear a random bird tweet. The reactions vary with the direction and the order in which the buttons are pushed. The flower changes color and the bird tweets but the sequence seems random. Press and hold down the button beneath the bee to make the bee vibrate and its tail light up. Learning what happens when takes repetition. Keeping track of all the options takes concentration. That makes Sensory Activity Board challenging.
Along with the joys of discovering what happens when, the young child is developing fine motor skills as she turns the dial, pushes sliding buttons, and presses and holds down a large button. Not only that, she’s developing cognitive and language skills too.
Bright colors against a white background provide high contrast beneficial to the blind and visually impaired. Sensory Activity Board works well with children with special needs.

Babies are sensory beings eager to explore and learn. So naturally they use their senses to get to know their environment. As they see and hear, touch, taste, and smell, they reach out and take action. That’s when they begin learning that what they do determines what happens next. Just as scientists replicate their experiments to insure the accuracy of their findings, babies repeat their actions and observe the responses to insure consistent reactions. Repetition is key to confirming what they have observed.
