3+ | Flying Wipe

Instructions

Dab a bit of essential oil on a dry baby wipe and let your baby smell the oil. Pretend the wipe is a bird flying in the air. Every few seconds, land the bird on your baby and name the body part where it landed: "That little birdie landed on your tummy!" Have fun with this activity as you continue to play with your sweet baby.

The Science

This activity engages your child's visuospatial skills, and stimulates their sense of touch and smell. Altogether, this activity can help your child learn how to integrate information from different cognitive networks and sensory systems to anticipate a response.
