Quick and Simple Texture Board
I realise that I haven't been making any toys for the Little Lady, so I decided to make her a texture board with things lying around the house.
I used bubble wrap, sand paper, batting, felt, aluminium foil, some packing paper, a soft cloth, corrugated cardboard and sticky paper. I simply cut everything to size and stuck it onto a piece of cardboard with white glue.
The Little Lady had fun exploring the textures with her hands *and* her feet.
Texture boards give babies sensory input, help with textile discrimination and builds up their vocabulary too (bumpy, smooth, sticky, etc).
Give it a go!
