  3. For increased sensory involvement add cut out felt shapes; coloring book pages; or store bought finger puppets.
  4. No Non-cents Nanna’s HEART FELT PLAY STORE creates sets of sensory play items with your child in mind.
  5. Kids can memorizes a nursery poem or finger play then when they read that poem in a book they can begin picking out the word on the page.
