This is a really easy actiity to make for your little one. These sensory boards encourage babies to explore the sense of touch. Babies love to feel and explore all the different textures.
Sensory activities provide children with a different tool for learning. Taking the time to make sensory boards for babies, or bins and bags for older toddlers and preschoolers is worth the investments of your time for hours of learning, exploring, and fun. It has been proven that children learn best by having "hands on" experiences, sensory experiences are vital to young children's learning and are a great bonding experience for you and your little one as well.
Another great benefit to sensory boards with small babies, is that it is also a great way to encouarge tummy time, since it gives them some entertainment while on their bellies.
We had a great time exploring the different things to feel! Our moms are looking forward to creating more boards and other sensory materials for their babies in August.
