Busy boards, also known as sensory walls, are educational toys for preschool children. These are Busy Boards or cubes that have multiple small items attached to them: buttons, zip lockers, pieces of cloth, latches, laces and so on. By touching them, kids hone their fine motor skills and develop their intellectual abilities. If you want your little ones to grow up being smart, optimistic and proactive, you should purchase such a toy for their room.
How Can the Kids Benefit from a Busy Board
In BumbleBee Smart Store Busy panels belong to the “Montessori toy” category. This means they relate to the Montessori method of educations, which includes encouraging the kids to learn and experiment. According to the Montessori approach, the small ones should be able to touch and move the object to explore how it functions. This enables them to hone their fine motor skills and develop their intellectual abilities.
Fine motor skills require good coordination of our fingers, eyes, brain and the nervous system. Kids should start to develop them before they go to school. Such skills involve the ability to fasten buttons, use scissors or draw with a pencil. After your son or daughter acquires these skills thanks to a busy board, they will become more independent in everyday life.
With the help of such toys, the kids learn to differentiate shapes, colors and textures. Their vocabulary expands. They get to know how to classify objects and express their emotions.
Types of Sensory Walls
The toys can be classified according to the following principles:
- Gender. Most of the panels are suitable for kids of any gender. However, some panels were designed primarily for boys and others for girls. This tells on their theme and color palette.
- Size and shape. Large panels should be attached to the wall in the kids’ room. Compact ones (flat or cube-shaped) can be taken on a trip to keep your son or daughter entertained in the transport.
- Theme. You can buy either a general-themed toy or one that is dedicated to a particular sphere of life, be it clothes or kitchen utensils.
- Painted or unpainted. Themed ones are most often painted to create a picturesque backdrop for the open-end play, which stimulates the imagination and creative abilities of the small ones.
Plus, there are DIY sensory walls that you can assemble yourself.
