Sensory Play is so much more than just a fun activity; it establishes the foundations needed by your child to develop various skills. During the first year of life, babies explore their surroundings through their senses. The more they explore the more they learn. That is why babies and toddlers touch everything and anything in their paths. Providing opportunities for them to learn about their world is an important part of your child’s development and understanding of how things come to be. Just telling them it is yuck is not going to stop them from trying to put the lemon in their mouth, so we need to make sure the environment is safe for discovery!
