Sensory Play - Fun With Water

I've been reading a bit about Sensory play lately and the benefits for your babies learning and brain development by using their 5 senses. So I thought I would do a little series on my blog documenting the different sensory activities we have been exploring.

The first activity we tried was playing in water. Thomas isn't really big enough for playing with toys in the bath yet as he can't sit up on his own so I thought I'd get him a bowl of water and let him have a play and make a mess with some of his bath toys that squirt water.

Thomas loved splashing his hands in the water and he found the noises the squeaky noises absolutely hilarious. I have a video of him chuckling his head off. Who would have thought such a cheap game like like this could be so much fun.

It was good to see Thomas's hand eye coordination when trying to pick up the toys and splashing them back in the water. It's really good he knows exactly what he wants and he goes and gets in. I was also using this for a bit of strength in his back as he was sitting up pretty much on his own for a lot of the time.

What sensory games do you like to do with your children or babies?
