This talk is aimed at parents and guardians or caregivers of babies and toddlers, in how to set up an invitation to engage babies and toddlers in open ended sensory play.
Sensory play is a way of engaging babies and young children in open-ended play that heightens their senses and encourages independent learning, imagination and creativity.
During this Zoom workshop Waterford artist Eilis O’Toole will give parents and guardians ideas and advice on how to engage their child in sensory play. Using many ingredients and materials found in your home, Eilis will give advice on how to plan and provide sensory play experiences. By exposing young children to new and interesting play experiences, it helps them to learn more about their world in a curious and natural way, through their senses.
Date: Wednesday 24th March (during the Easter holidays)
Time: 11:00 AM -11:30 AM
Eilis O’Toole graduated from N.C.A.D. in 1999 with a degree in Fine Art Painting. She has exhibited in many national group shows, and solo shows. She has work in public collections including the OPW and AXA Insurance. Eilis completed a level 8 course in ‘Group Facilitation in the Arts’, in CIT Crawford, Cork, and has been working as a freelance artist facilitator in schools, preschool facilities, libraries, Lismore Castle Arts, and arts festivals such as Cruinniú na nÓg, Well Festival, Spróg, Towers and Tales and Kilkenny Book Festival.
