Texture Play

Got an enthusiastic crawler in the house? Give her something intriguing to crawl on and around that teaches her about textures. Scatter safe articles with different textures around the room, such as a silky scarf, a chenille bath mat, some bubble wrap, corduroy, velvet, sticky contact paper, etc. If your baby can stand against a low table, put some of the objects on top for feeling from a different angle.
