Summary: Playing with wet sponges of differing textures assists in the development of fine motor and cognitive skills.

For this activity you’ll need a variety of new and unused, different shaped, coloured and textured sponges.

  • Rub the sponges gently on your baby’s skin and encourage them to hold them in their hands.
  • Use both dry and wet sponges so your baby can experience an even greater variety of textures.
  • Introduce sponges into your baby’s bath routine for a more playful experience.
  • Use sponges in other activities, such as painting and water play.
