Little Brain Builders: Exploration

Your baby is an explorer! An explorer is “a person who explores an unfamiliar area,” and everything for babies is unfamiliar. They are exploring their surroundings every day and learning about their world through touch, sight, smell, sound, and taste.

Ever wonder why babies put everything in their mouths? One reason is because they are utilizing more senses - touch, taste, AND smell - when they bring something to their mouth to explore and understand it.

Want to encourage your baby’s inner explorer? First 5 California Sensory Play activity encourages your baby to learn by feeling.
