Safe and Engaging Sensory Play for Babies
Sensory play is an important and fun way for children to explore and learn about their world. However, it can be challenging to engage in sensory play with your baby since everything ends up in their mouth. Here is a way to allow your baby to safely explore through sensory play, without needing to worry. It is great for tummy time, practicing sitting or standing, or even to take with you in the car or store.
Waiting is hard! How to make wait times fun
Waiting can be one of the hardest things that we have to do. It can be challenging as an adult, so think about how hard it must be for your toddler or preschooler that hasn’t fully learned how to regulate their emotions yet. They’re tired, excited, bored, hyper, and just plain done with being in line. Maybe they are overwhelmed by sensory input from the lights and sounds or an uncomfortable seam in their clothing. This can make the seemingly simple task of waiting feel nearly impossible to your little one, which leads to unpleasant behavior and sometimes tricky situations for parents to deal with. (Do I ditch my almost full cart and carry my screaming child out of the store or keep shopping? We’ve all been there.)
