Another sensory activity that Little Man enjoys are Touch & Feel Cards. They are made for 2 years old and up (and he's only 6 months), so I just need to be careful that he doesn't poke himself in the eye with the cards when he is handling them. I show him the pictures and talk about them with him. They have sparkly numbers on them and fun pictures of animals with different textures.
Water play is a huge hit with him as well. He loves to splash in a large bowl of water and absolutely soak Momma!
Why do I think it's important to give my 6 month old these opportunities?
1. To learn about the world around him.
2. To give him sensory experiences that will enrich his overall development.
