Children are constantly exploring their world… and using all 5 senses to do it! Take a look at how your child learns through every sense.
5. Seeing is Believing
Children will take in everything they see, so make sure to inspire their vision! Take every opportunity to explore the natural world – beach, forest, desert, mountain – whatever you have near you! Also, make sure you are monitoring what they are watching during screen time.
4. Fascinatingly Fluid is Touch!
Sensory exploration is vital for all children! Children love water play. Outside with the hose, inside in the bathtub, at the kitchen sink or at the neighborhood pool, children are attracted to exploring with water. In addition, it’s very calming… and there are always situations that can benefit from that!
3. Music to my Hears
Music engages and inspires children! Try drumming or singing with them to explore things like rhythm and pitch, vibration and volume. Music is also a great way to get kids moving and exploring their physical selves!
2. Take Time to Smell the Roses
According to SIRC, although smell-identification ability increases during childhood, even newborn infants are highly sensitive to some important smells: recent research shows that newborn babies locate their mothers’ nipples by smell. Smell is a great way to explore the world! So wherever you go or whatever you do, ask them how it smells, why they think it smells that way, and what it makes them think of.
1. A Taste of Life!
Taste is an obvious exploration from Day one. Babies are constantly putting things in their mouths to realize the world around them! But it doesn’t stop there… Make sure to engage your children while they are eating! Ask questions about the food, where they think it comes from, how they think it’s made, and more! Also, introduce children to different parts of the world by introducing them to foods from other countries.
