24+ | Stacking Snacks

The Science

This activity engages visual, tactile, and olfactory senses, and promotes multisensory integration. Over time, multisensory integration can aid cognitive, perceptual, and social-emotional skills, which support adaptability in school, with friends, and intrapersonally.
