A new sensory item to try is a tub of fabric scraps, or even old rags or washcloths.
Put a selection of the fabric scraps and washcloths in an old wipes container.
This is the best toy ever for older babies!
Babies can feel the fabric between their hands, exploring how it feels, and even taste it.
Shut the lid to the container and then pull out a bit of the fabric to pull.
Pull, pull, pull the fabric out, one scrap after another.
They might not be able to quite get every last piece of fabric.
And closing and opening the lid of the wipes container will even keep them happy and busy.
Poking the fabric back into the wipes container can keep the fun going again and again.
