Small children want your attention, especially when you’re busy. You know the feeling. An easy way to appease them is to hand them your phone. I was guilty of this recently when my daughter was getting restless and noisy as we sat in a meeting. Sometimes playing a game or watching a show on your phone is a good solution. But during school time, you would like for your young children to be learning and developing too. Sensory play is the perfect way to help small children learn and develop motor skills while you are busy teaching your school-age children.
