I have added two new activities to Baby Bean’s shelf this week. The first is a shape peg puzzle, the second is a texture box. In the texture box are pairs of 6 different kinds of materials, further along the line they can be matched but for now they are just for Baby Bean to explore freely.
I I ntroduced both to him and in between his busy slithering/crawling schedule he does like to return to the peg puzzle and remove all the shapes. He has only had one session with the texture box, it was great to watch as he pulled them all out and kept picking them up and scrunching them and hitting the floor with them. After watching him do this for a while it occurred to me that it looked as though he was wiping with them in much the same way I use a baby wipe/cloth!
