Tummy Textures

Baby Laundry

Laundry day can be a great time for brain-building! Give your child some tummy time on different fabrics, like a sweater or a fluffy towel. Describe the textures to them like, “Do you feel the scratchy sweater?” Watch how they react to the way it feels and talk with them about it. Children learn through their senses.

Touching different textures is a great way for your child to explore the world. And talking together helps them understand more of the world around us. It also connects sensations, words, and what they mean.
