30+ | Texture Exploration


Explore the outdoors with your child -- gather a variety of natural textures and ask your child to feel the difference by, holding one in each hand. Encourage them to use their senses, listening (does it crunch?), observing (what colors do you see?), touching and smelling. And if possible, let them go barefoot to enhance the experience.

The Science

By offering your child opportunities to intentionally observe and connect with the world around them, you will help preserve their naturally mindful brain, which otherwise tends to fade as they grow up.
