Get kids excited with a new fun activity. The shining pumpkin is a sense of sight activity that’s perfect for Halloween.
Our eyes work from the moment we get up until we go to bed, every day they receive a large amount of information, colors, movements, shapes, figures, in general everyone around us, all this information reaches the brain which processes and becomes knowledge. This sense of sight activity will teach kids how their eyes work.
Did you know that the eyes produce more water than normal as defense mechanisms, it is for this reason that the eyes cry when we are cutting an onion.
The eyes are the organ of the senses that we stimulate the most, however at birth it is the least developed, it requires time and stimuli to be able to see clearly.
An adequate stimulation at an early age will not only allow us to see well, the brain takes all the information that enters through our eyes and develops stable bases to facilitate cognitive development, interaction with other people and the development of the visual-motor.
This is why the context in which the boys and girls operate is very important and we will explain it to kids in this sense of sight activity.
