I love being offered products to review but we really really enjoy the opportunity of going to new events where we can learn something or try a different experience! So when we were offered the chance to attend a baby sensory class I was excited.
Baby Sensory provides hundreds of sensory development activities that are great fun for parents and babies to share in the vital first year. The classes include fibre optic light shows, bubbles, bells, musical fun, baby signing, puppet shows, amazing light balls and so much more. Classes are aimed from birth to 13 months with separate sessions for birth to 6 months and 7 months to 13 months.
Classes are held all over the country so we joined our local class in Muswell Hill. The class consisted of about 12 mums and babies and everyone was very friendly. We sat in a semi-circle with our children on our laps and Kaye, the class leader, sat at the front leading each activity. The theme for the class was Mother’s Day and we did lots of different activities which included the Say Hello song with signs, a Mother’s Day tea party with pretend food, ‘dusting’ with pompoms and playing with long ribbons. Socks came off to walk on different textures and we watched bubbles fill the room from a fab bubble machine.
There was lots of music, and the children were encouraged to be active. Edward was a bit bemused and shy as the class obviously knew each other. I enjoyed watching his reaction to the different activities and he loved the music, the bubbles and the opportunity to touch and feel so many different toys and textures. It made me realise that everything is new and exciting for young children and I shouldn’t be afraid to let Edward take his shoes and socks off more often and explore his surroundings.
This is a great class for new parents, a way to meet new friends and get your little one exploring the world around them. I wish I had discovered the classes sooner as Edward is at the top end of the age range. However, Baby Sensory have recently launched Toddler Sense, adventure play sessions for 18 months to 3 years which will hopefully be coming to our area soon.
We were allowed to attend a Baby Sensory session for free for the purpose of review.
