Treasure baskets are a cheap (or even free) and straightforward way to engage all your baby’s senses during playtime. Babies learn best when all their senses and limbs are actively “doing”, and treasure baskets can help nurture their natural curiosity.
The goal is to stimulate your baby’s curiosity and have them interact with the objects whilst sitting up, but treasure baskets offer many benefits.
✔️ A sense of curiosity will motivate lifelong learning.
✔️ Developing concentration enables brain development.
✔️ Treasure baskets are multisensory, and babies learn through touch, sight, hearing, taste and smell.
✔️ They can help babies develop their decision-making skills by choosing an item and how they want to interact with it.
