Surprise box sensory play

6th 06 2017. Posted in Baby Play by elliekelly

 

I have been filling up a show box with random things from around the house for Neive for a few months now and today i remembered to get some photos of her exploring them. I had a few bits from the kitchen, tube of smarties as she loves a shake and grabbed things out of the draws under the stairs (where all the things we don’t need or remember we have live).

She loves to have a rummage and then either throw them about, put them in her mouth or take items for a walk around the room.

 

The Baby Sensory group i used to go to did this which is what gave me the idea to carry on. I try and include items that have a new texture, smell or sound for Neive to explore. Mark has done one with dry pasta and she was fascinated by that so i think i will do an all food themed one next time.

Baby play with tissue paper

30th 05 2017. Posted in Baby Play by elliekelly

 

This play idea I got after Neive pulled all the tissues out of the tissue box. How do babies know the things that make the most mess are the most fun!

I took the now empty tissue box and re filled it with bits of tissue paper. It was so easily i just ripped bits up to about the correct size and then laid them in and gave it to her.

We have played with this a few times now and on the third go she started to rip up the bits and of course try and put some in her mouth. We are starting to have a go at getting them back in as well now.

 

I wouldn’t leave Neive with this as I’m sure she would eat all the tissue!
