Whole Body Exploration


Babies are amazing!  The world is so very new for them and they explore it with abandon!

Being back with infants after spending a year and a half with toddlers reminded me of the ways that infants explore the world around them.  Not only are their five senses engaged, but also their whole body helps them explore new materials and a new environment.



Listening to the sounds around them…

Tasting and feeling with their mouths…

Looking closely at objects and the room…


Holding and touching everything within grasp, including people, objects, or parts of the room…



Using their whole body, like kicking against a basket to feel it or rolling from wooden floor to carpet, to get a sense of the environment around them…



Infants are so amazing how they experience the world around them with all of their senses and their whole body!!
