Tactile activities are a very good way of helping young children develop their motor skills and dexterity while having fun. Tactile play features teach them to experiment and repeat movements, as well as stimulating their curiosity.
Children gain awareness of the concepts of shape, state, weight, volume and learn to understand cause and effect relationships. They learn, for example, to touch components and understand what they are made of and their usefulness. This stimulates their imagination and creativity. Tactile play encourages children to explore their surroundings and develop their perception of objects.
Tactile play features also develop powers of concentration. These activities can engage children’s attention for quite some time in outdoor play areas.
