We’ve had such a lovely time this week splashing around in the creepy crawly pond. Babies and toddlers are particularly drawn to water, not only because of the familiarity of their womb environment, but also because of the calming effects it can have, there are so many benefits of water play for babies and toddlers;
💦💧Water Play gives many opportunities to develop fine and gross motor skills across age ranges; actions like patting, stamping, pouring, squirting, dripping, swooshing, stirring and squeezing all strengthen the little muscles in hands, arms, feet and legs. After all, it takes more muscle strength to move arms and legs through water than air.
💦💧It’s an amazing sensory experience introducing our little people to textures (slippy, slimy, wet…) and temperatures. 💦💧 Water play allows children to explore a substance and make discoveries about it; how it moves, how it feels, how you feel with water on you...
💦💧 Water play releases energy, it can be both invigorating or relaxing and calming for young children. 💜💦💜💦💜💦💜💦💜💦💜💦💜💦💜💦
