Young Babies and toddlers are experiencing their world through their senses from the moment they are born.
The sense of touch will be developed naturally as they start to explore everything from their own clothes, to the toys in their environment.
The sense of touch is probably the sense used most often.
Touch sensations we feel can include soft, hard, smooth, rough, hot, cold, pressure, pain, tickle, itch, vibration, sticky, slimy, wet, dry, etc.
When there’s a tactile sensory experience connected to movement, the brain makes more connections and more easily retains that information.
It’s through the sense of touch that children will further learn about the things in their environment. It will help them discover different shapes, textures, and temperatures.
