Baby Activity – Texture Cards – Need Ideas!

Baby Activity – Texture Cards

baby activity texture cards On the blog, Inspiration Surrounds Creativity Abounds she created a really neat Australian Animal Activity (click on the link and scroll down a bit) for her kids where she had them match up the textures on the cards to how they thought the animal might feel.

As I was reading this, I thought about how neat it would be to start collecting different textures for baby N to experiment with. I’m expecting them to also go in her mouth so I’m not sure if putting them on the cards will work.

So I need your help/ideas! If I collect different textured items for N, any ideas on what I could put them on or how I could display them so it is safe for N to handle on her own (not unsupervised of course)?

Great idea Nicole! I would put these textures together as a blanket, with a plain backing, much like a quilt. That would be safe, and none of the pieces would get lost!

oooh I love that idea! Even a smaller one that they could hold in the car too. Love it!

I made a texture blanket for my daughter when she was a little one. I should pull it out again for her. She used to really enjoy it and somewhere in the shuffle it got put away. Thanks for the idea!

I like Deborah's idea of a textured baby blanket - sounds pretty durable. What about making textured blocks?

Thank you so much for featuring my blog on your site.
