Playing with wet sponges of differing textures assists in the development of fine motor and cognitive skills.
For this activity you’ll need a variety of new and unused, different shaped, coloured and textured sponges.
- Rub the sponges gently on your baby’s skin and encourage them to hold them in their hands.
- Use both dry and wet sponges so your baby can experience an even greater variety of textures.
- Introduce sponges into your baby’s bath routine for a more playful experience.
- Use sponges in other activities, such as painting and water play.
