Sensory bags during Born to Read!
These small bags contain a few everyday objects that offer some sensory appeal for babies to explore. It presents another opportunity for parents and caregivers to support baby in developing their natural curiosity and risk-taking, as well as model sensory vocabulary and the wonder of trying something new. For example, the bag shown here contains a pinecone and feather (touch) and bubble wrap (sound). The changeover in items occurs every 2 or 3 uses. This idea is borrowed from the book ‘Promoting Attachment with a Wiggle, Giggle, Hug and Tickle’ by Fiona Brownlee and Lindsay Norris, 2015:
Born to Read at the Pierre Berton Resource Library is offered weekly on Tuesdays from 10:30-11 a.m. for children aged 0 to 18 months. Hope to see you and your baby there!
