When my little guy was still an itby bity one, he LOVED feeling different things. One of his favorite outings was to the fabric store where he would reach out and feel all of the different fabrics, When he was around 4 or 5 months, I decided to embrace this activity for him and go with it. I knew I wanted to sew them together so that it had the texture on both sides as well as to prevent fraying and risk him eating all of the little threads.
I repeated this for each square. I made maybe 1-2 at a time, usually after bedtime until I had a whole variety of squares. I kept them in a shoe box which my son loved to open up and explore!
The Infant Textured Fabric activity will follow.
Another great part of this project, is that it grew with my son. Once he was older, I was able to develop the activity for him. The Toddler Fabric Pull Activity will follow as well.
