The Babies have been really busy this week, exploring their different senses.
They had lots of fun creating different coloured sensory bags and explored lots of different types and sizes of sensory bottles. Touching and feeling the different textures, putting them to their mouths and banging them down on to the surface to hear the different sounds they could make. Staff named the colours and imitated the sounds the children made as they played. The Babies had great fun smiling and babbling along with them!
