The textures are very stimulating and interesting from the bumpy corn on the cob to the soft plush pull apart Haba turkey! None of the little hands in our home could resist this bin!
We had lots of opportunity to discuss adjectives as we played, too: smooth, soft, bumpy, crunchy, and wrinkly!
Of course, our preschooler E is ready for imaginative dramatic play with the food. She takes our orders and prepares our plates. These salt and pepper shakers are filled with white and black beads that rattle realistically when you season the food which the baby loves, too!
A great fine motor exercise is the cause and effect play baby D enjoys as he pulls the crinkly paper straight then let's it spring back! BOING!
I am thankful to be able to watch them play together side by side. I love creating invitations to explore that include both my preschooler and toddler!
