Pretend Play Food Creating Tomorrow’s Chefs

Pretend play food may be creating tomorrow’s chefs, you never know. Our children watch us everyday and learn so much from the simple things we do. Preparing a meal is one of the interesting things a child picks up on, and pretend play food is instrumental in creating tomorrow’s chef. Creating tomorrow’s chef is something every child thinks he is, when he acts out food preparation with pretend play food.  Our pretend play food is one of the best ways for them to act out this concept. Simple toys are sometimes the best ones, and SensoryEdge’s pretend play food may just be creating tomorrow’s chefs. A wooden toy food groups set is an ideal pretend play food toy to help him learn the proper diet we all should have, a necessary key in creating tomorrow’s chef. Creating tomorrow’s chef begins right here with the food groups taught through pretend food.  Your child will spend hours playing with pretend play food, your child may not know he or she is learning valuable information for the future about nutrition and even some basic food preparation. Pretending to cook vegetables and serving them up to their stuffed animals around a table in their room could lead to your child cleaning their plate at dinner when you remind them their teddy bears ate all “their” vegetables.

Autism And How Sensory Toys Help Development

Most children love to explore the world around them using all their senses but some children with Autism need some help to appreciate the world by using sensory toys. Children with Autism have a preferred way of what and how they want to do things. Some may prefer to use their sense of smell over vision while others may prefer to rock back and forth rather than listen to talk around them, since the rocking sensation feels good to them. This kind of behavior may be confusing to those around children with Autism but actually the behavior gives clues to the preferred sensory communication the child likes to use. Once the sensory channel is defined for the Autistic child, use of the sensory toys will be able to enhance communication with the child and maintain a longer attention span.

Welcome to SensoryEdge.com

As the parents of two young children, we understand the importance of providing them with the right toys and learning products. When we had our first child we had no idea what kind of toys we should purchase; we bought what we thought was cute. As he grew, we learned that he had a speech disorder and sensory integration issues. It was then that we discovered how truly important it is to have the right educational and sensory-based products. It is with this in mind that we created SensoryEdge.com. We are dedicated to providing the best items at great prices. We also want to be a resource for caregivers.
