SKILLS DEVELOPED IN THE TREASURE HUNT

TACTILE SENSE 

Exposing children to a variety of textures from an early age is vital for their development. The soft sand, smooth jewelry, textured coins, and rough shells stimulate the tactile sense.

OLFACTORY SENSE
is stimulated by the cinnamon scent of the sand. A well-developed sense of smell influences many aspects of a child’s overall growth like nutrition, and emotional and social development.

FINE-MOTOR SKILLS
Opening and closing the lock on the treasure chest or compass, turning the compass’ dial, digging and retrieving treasure from the sand, and shovelling sand into the sieve.

HAND-EYE COORDINATION
is practiced when they fit the bangles onto their arms, put the rings on their fingers, or shovel sand into the sieve or treasure chest.

VISUAL PERCEPTION
Using the eye patch or telescope isolates the use of one eye to stimulate this skill one eye at a time.

LANGUAGE SKILLS
Learning names of the tools and accessories provided, and words associated with treasure, pirates, and voyages.

AUDITORY PERCEPTION
Placing the clam shells over their ears, presents an opportunity to hear and interpret a new sound.

BILATERAL INTEGRATION
Children must learn from a young age to use both parts of their brain together. This is accomplished by using both hands during play with the various accessories provided.

MIDLINE CROSSING
occurs as children reach across the tray to reposition or retrieve accessories, vital for reading and writing.

IMAGINATIVE PLAY
The exciting life of a pirate invites children into a world filled with adventure and treasure.

MATHEMATICAL SKILLS
are developed when children can count the coins or jewellery provided, sort the treasure according to size, shape or colour, or count how many pieces fit into the treasure chest.

COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT
Fitting treasure into the treasure chest using different combinations stimulates their problem-solving skills.
