So what's sensory play and why should you be doing it?
Sensory play is an activity that stimulates your baby's senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. Sensory bins are a great way to stimulate senses but most of the ideas we see on Pinterest and blogs are geared toward toddlers. However it's INCREDIBLY important to offer these activities to our littlest babies too! Why should the toddlers have all the fun!?
So here's a little quick peek at my 4 month olds sensory play activities. I'm a big fan of low cost, low prep activities. So I'm always thinking of what I can use around my home. I hope these ideas are useful to you!
I hope you enjoyed these easy baby sensory ideas!
