Children up to the age of 6 are very much dependent on hands-on, real experiences to make sense of their world.

Senses 6 and 7 are the senses of movement in the body – proprioception and the vestibular system. Proprioception is a person’s sense of body awareness or position in space. The vestibular system, located in the inner ear, is responsible for the sense of Balance.


Aim to play with your child for 10 to 15 minutes, especially if you’re coming home from a long day at work.

  • Dancing and moving to music
  • Finger painting
  • Playing with play dough
  • Playing with sand and water
  • Listening to stories
  • Singing songs and rhymes having chats
  • Engaging in fantasy play
  • Building puzzles
