'BRAIN PLAY FOR BABIES WORKSHOP' - by 'nubaby wellness' - date: T B D | 11-12.30pm
You know babies go through the most intense brain development in the 1st few years of life – their brain actually triples in weight + establishes about 1000 trillion nerve connections!
Needless to say it’s prime time for sensory stimulation + exposure to many different experiences, but sometimes too much of a good thing can have unexpected consequences.
Research shows that certain activities and interactions have much greater influence on baby’s brain development and long-term learning, and surprisingly, these might not be what you think it is.
In this workshop, we’ll cover:
- 4 criteria to choosing brain stimulating toys
- How to play with your baby to promote brain + motor development
- Ideas for fun + engaging brain-boosting activities
- Our top 10 recommendations for baby toys that are fun + stimulating, but don’t overwhelm
