Playing with scarves is a very fun sensory activity that engages your little one and optimizes their development.
In infancy, scarves can be used as a sensory material with the parent holding the scarves or the scarves hanging out of reach from a baby gym. As the child grows, they will begin to use them for movement and then eventually as part of their pretend play.
There are many benefits to playing with scarves:
Enhance sensory-motor skills - explore texture, looking at the bright colours, tracking the movement of the scarf with the eyes
Develops fine motor skills - throwing the scarf back and forth, grasping the scarf
Creates bonding time
Encourages self-regulation skills
Builds focus, concentration and patience
Encourages gross motor skills - dancing and movement
Playing peek-a-boo helps to enhance the understanding of object permanence (understanding that an object still exists even if it can't be seen)
Develops the sensorimotor systems as children move the scarves in all different directions
Encourages open-ended, imaginative play
This set of 6 scarves are made from nylon and includes the primary and secondary colours.
