The bumpies taught me about sensory play. And I love them for it.
No this isn’t some dirty Fifty Shades beeswax.
It’s basically letting your kid explore different textures with their hands.
The other night I noticed Addy was moving her hamburger and eggs from her plate to a bowl with her spoon. I figured now would be a good time to try it. The weather is still nice but not hot, so I grabbed a couple bowls of Gladware, a few scoops of rice, and a measuring cup. We went out to the patio, and I let her have at it.
She loved it! I loved it! She played with rice for a solid 30 mins. We only really quit because she dumped most of the rice out which resulted in the “Oh God!” video hilarity. I bought some green peas for her to try because they shouldn’t be so hard to scoop. A whopping 80 cents for entertainment should be worth it.
Hooray for internet moms! Parents, have any of you tried this? Should I try some other cabinet ingredient? Non-parents, did you ever do this as a kid and I missed out on something so cool?
