From birth baby will enjoy learning through sensory experiences, what they see, hear, taste, smell and feel. They will love watching and listening, as you help them to explore, scarves, woollen pom-poms, feathers, sliver sheet, bells, shakers and different containers filled with a variety of contents. Check my blog for more ideas and information.
The benefits of Treasure Baskets by far outweigh that of expensive brightly coloured toys. However, because of the contents it is advised to supervise Treasure Basket exploration and to check the contents regularly.

Sensory opportunities are so important from birth for developing a foundation for future learning. Babies are learning through their senses before they are born. They can hear from 16 weeks gestation and see from around 7 months.
They hear sounds inside the womb that can be of comfort to them when they are born. For example, the first sounds to reassure baby is that of their mothers/fathers/carers voice. Baby quickly makes the link between the voice that they heard in the womb to the face that they see when they are born. This helps baby feel safe and secure. They remember sounds such as; music, television, pets, vacuum, traffic etc.
This is just an example of the many reasons why it is important to provide sensory opportunities from birth. In the beginning baby can see faces at a distance of approximately 15-20 cm, so it is important to hold them close.
Also, in the beginning they see light and dark patterns, as their vision is developing, and prefer to look at bold black and white patterns. They often stare at the window or bright lights against a dark ceiling for the same reason.
