Babies learn by using their senses. A treasure basket can provide interest and stimulation for all senses and also help build physical development as babies explore the contents
About this module
Elinor Goldschmied developed treasure baskets over 60 years ago for babies who could sit up but who were not yet mobile.
She understood that babies' brains grow rapidly at this stage, developing in response to their surroundings through the senses of touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight. A treasure basket is a collection of everyday objects chosen carefully to stimulate those senses helping the brain to make connections and develop.
Her practical ideas are still helping early years' practitioners and parents to provide the rich and nurturing environment that babies and young children need if they are to thrive mentally, emotionally and physically.
