Infant Stimulation Activity 98: texture sticks
As your baby is now reaching, grasping, and feeling any and all objects within his reach, stimulating him with different textures will become more and more fun. An easy item to make is a texture stick. Glue various textured fabrics onto some old-fashioned wooden clothes pins. Burlap, felt, satin, velvet and corduroy are great textured fabrics. As your baby feels each one, talk about it with her. Is the texture smooth, bumpy, scratchy? Your baby will be working on grasping as well enjoying the stimulation of the various textures.
