Natural sensory play.
The Babies have had a wonderful time exploring different natural objects and what they can do to playdough. First we used sticks to poke and make different marks in the playdough, as well as pine cones and logs. Then we got the flowers out! The babies really enjoyed picking the petals off and sprinkling them everywhere, they were very soft and smooth. They also enjoyed smelling the colourful flowers and poking the stems into the playdough.
