Welcome to my shop where I hope to inspire the love of learning through fun hands-on educational sensory play. Exposing children early on to sensory play in any age-appropriate, child-driven environment is the key to building confidence, knowledge, and mastery. In addition, sensory play is extremely important for children as it supports language development, cognitive growth, fine motor skills, problem-solving skills, and social interaction. As your child learns through play, s/he triggers multiple neurons when tactile, visual, and language stimuli are sparked off! Besides, with this Penguin sensory learning kit, all the thinking and prepping was done for you, so the set up should be minimal. Most importantly, this Montessori inspired small-world sensory play-tray will offer opportunities for simple yet engaging activities that promote important developmental skills such as hand-eye coordination, body control, and dexterity.
Did you know that combining the sense of touch with other senses such as vision, hearing, smell, and/or taste helps build cognitive skills? In fact, pediatricians now advocate for simultaneous multi-sensorial stimulation! The nervous system is multisensorial right from its early development stage when a toddler, for example, uses a sense of touch to explore the texture of food, smell and taste to identify it, and the vestibular sense to sit upright at a weaning chair during food offerings. In fact, hands-on learning through the power of sensory play happens all the time! Besides advancing fine motor skills, children also develop language, social interaction, and reasoning skills, as they strengthen neurological pathways within the developing brain! Sensory play also helps develop new synapses between neurons, leading to a lasting memory and brain agility! Thus, I pay homage to the power of sensory play!
Please note, that this Montessori inspired Small-World Penguin Sensory Kit can is mainly designed for preschoolers and kindergartens, but can be modified for toddlers.

Oobleck ~also known as “Goop” ~ is an inexpensive, non-toxic example of a non–Newtonian fluid which is a suspension of starch (e.g. cornstarch) in water, where the resulting substance ~ also called “ooze” or “magic mud” ~ is both a solid and a liquid. The name “oobleck” is derived from the Dr. Seuss book Bartholomew and the Oobleck. The recipe is one of the easiest of any slime, but is also one of the most amazing! Trust me! Your child (and you) will be mesmerized as your slime turns from a solid to a liquid and back again in seconds! One second you grab a solid handful of this magic gooey, the next second it drips through your hands like a liquid!
