Have you ever noticed how your baby puts almost everything into her mouth? Children learn through their senses—tasting, hearing, smelling, touching, seeing.
More intellectual growth occurs in the first three years of life than at any other time. Infants and toddlers absorb information every minute of the day. They do this by watching, chewing and tasting, listening, babbling, and eventually producing words. They rattle and drop, touch, feel, explore, and discover.
That’s what makes sensory learning so important for early learning! Try this easy activity to encourage your child to explore his senses using everyday supplies from your home.
