5 Sensory Explorations for Baby

This post was originally published on Building Acorns, as that blog no longer exists and this is one of my favourite posts I thought I would share it all with you here!

Sensory play is a vital part of your baby’s life-their little brain needs to be constantly stimulated by sensory experiences to develop. That doesn’t mean that if you’re not constantly creating and providing your baby with, super amazing, Pinterest worthy activities, that your baby’s brain won’t develop. Whilst those activities can be awesome fun and there are those of us (guilty!) who thrive on providing activities like that for our little ones; for babies all play experiences are sensory. Your baby is naturally curious and from the time they were born they’ve been using their senses to explore the world around them. You can enhance their sensory exploration and in turn help their brain development by doing very simple things, here’s just five to get you thinking about how you can engage in sensory play with your bub.
