An interesting environment for a baby is one that will stimulate her senses. For newborns, your face and smile as well as black and white shapes, will stimulate her sight. In the same way your different words and tone of voice, songs and laughter will stimulate her listening; and your touch, hugs and kisses will stimulate her sense of touch. And let’s not forget that a baby loves putting everything in her mouth so having safe interesting toys that she can put in her mouth and explore is very helpful. A baby’s brain is well prepared from the beginning to absorb this type of information, and an interesting environment will greatly help stimulate a baby’s development.
In the case of toddlers, activities and toys where they can use their hands and feet, solve problems, pretend, and have the opportunity of doing things by themselves, will be the most interesting for them. In general, interesting activities will also help keep your child safer, as he will be engaged and won’t be as tempted to look for something he should not touch.
