12+ | Body Textures


Find two textures — natural objects are preferable — and gently use them to simultaneously trace lines along the left and right sides of your baby's body. You can do this on the face, abdomen, arms, and legs. Repeat this motion with textures on the opposite sides.

The Science

Gentle touch with novel textures can stimulate a child's awareness and openness to new experiences. When a child is open to new experiences, they will better be able to connect with and learn from their everyday experiences.
