A terrific first book to give your child tactile stimulation.

While babies primarily use their mouths to explore and learn at this age, they still love to discover different textures with their hands. Here’s a fun and frugal project that will provide your child with hours of feel-and-learn enjoyment.

What You’ll Need

Five cardboard 5-diamter circles (Durable, 5-ply)
Scissors
Five different fabrics and papers cut into two sets of 5-diameter circles. (e.g. felt, burlap, silk, sandpaper, cotton)
Non-toxic fabric glue
3 binder rings

Get Baby Excited

  • Cover and glue both sides of the cardboard discs with the same kind of fabric or paper.
  • Once it has dried, use the loose leaf rings to attach the cards together to create a book.
  • Help your child feel each material as you describe its texture.
