Using the five senses can be a powerful tool in connecting with your
child. You can connect with your child through sight, touch, sound,
taste, and smell. Additionally, you can talk with your child about how
their senses strengthen everyday experiences. Here are some ways to
use each sense in parenting:

  1. Eyes: Engage your child visually through activities like reading
    books, watching movies, and exploring nature. Encourage them to
    observe their surroundings and notice details. Take your child on
    walks and point out different things they see. You can also play
    games that involve looking for things, such as “I Spy.”
  1. Nose: Introduce your child to different scents and smells, such as
    flowers, spices, and food. Teach them to identify different scents
    and how they can affect our moods and emotions.  You can also
    take them to places where they can smell different things, such as a
    bakery or a flower shop.
  1. Ears: Singing, playing instruments, and listening to music with
    your child can help develop their auditory skills and appreciation
    for different sounds and genres. Play music, read stories, and sing
    songs with your child. You can also take them to places where they
    can hear different sounds, such as a park or a concert.
  1. Tongue: Cooking and tasting different foods can help your child
    develop their taste buds and learn about different cultures and
    cuisines. Let your child help you cook and bake. You can also give
    them different foods to taste and let them describe the different
  1. Touch: Activities like playing with toys, building with blocks, and
    exploring different textures can help your child develop their sense
    of touch and fine motor skills. Let your child explore different
    textures, such as smooth, rough, soft, and hard. You can also give
    them different objects to touch and let them describe how they feel.

By discussing how senses enhance everyday experiences, you can help
develop your child in a well-rounded way and deepen their appreciation
for their surroundings.

Using the five senses can help children learn about the world around
them. It can also help them develop their cognitive, social, and
emotional skills.
Here are some specific activities you can do with your child to help them
use their five senses:

  • Sight: Go on a nature walk and look for different shapes, colors, and sizes. You can also play a game of “I Spy.”
  • Hearing: Listen to different kinds of music. You can also play a game of “Simon Says.”
  • Smell: Smell different flowers, fruits, and vegetables. You can also bake cookies or bread and let your child smell the aroma.
  • Taste: Try different foods from different cultures. You can also make a tasting plate with different fruits, vegetables, and crackers.
  • Touch: Feel different textures, such as fur, feathers, and silk. You can also make a sensory bin with different objects for your child to explore.

By using the five senses in parenting, you can help your toddler to learn
and grow in a fun and engaging way.
