Just found some really cute pictures in my post ideas folder from earlier this year and thought I would share some with you. I found the most adorable brown paper sensory activity for babies. I honestly had totally forgotten about this super simple sensory activity.
Here’s the details: We must have gotten a package with brown paper as the packaging material. We took the long roll of brown paper and laid it out on the livingroom floor. While trying to smooth out the wrinkle to save this “free craft paper” Lil’ Red discovered it!
He was a new crawler at the time and really enjoyed rolling and crawling over this crinkly surface. You can see the pure delight and ejoyment of his new found discovery all over his face. That grin is the sweetest and most curious look around: don’t you think? I think he tried to “taste” the paper once or twice as well!
What super simple sensory activity have you accidentally found for your baby or child? Have you thought of recycling an everyday material for something fun? Please share your ideas so we can give them a try!

You know, we get paper like that from time to time, and we’ve painted on it, used it for wrapping paper, done cave drawings on it, and made matchbox car roads with it. But it never occurred to me to put Luke on it and see what he’d do with it. 🙂 I’ll have to try it, thanks.

Thank you for joining in with the #FrugalFamilyLinky I think this is such a simple but brilliant idea – I quite like the scrunchy sound of paper too!
So glad I saw your Linky Party via KBN:) Thanks for letting me share!

What a fun idea! Little ones, especially, love the simple things – I think we forget that sometimes. My daughter used to be happy just ripping the pages from old magazines or catalogs!
This looks like fun!
Simple fun is truly best isn’t it?
