We really kicked off our studies of the 5 senses this week! I chose to start with touch.
First we made a touchy/feely hand. I wanted to get 5 textures that I could easily cut and glue onto paper. I got satiny fabric, a sheet protector, sandpaper, and some leftover minky fabric. For all of these I traced one of the boys fingers on it and just glued it down.
I had a lot of trouble coming up with the last one. On Pinterest I had seen a piece of art made by melting crayons with something like a blow dryer. I figured waxy would be a good 5th texture. However, I underestimated the power of my dinky hair dryer. It ended up spraying the melting crayon.
Of course we had to do a touchy-feely bag. I just put a full items in there that are common around our house. We have never done this activity before so I wasn’t sure what they would be able to get and what would be too difficult.
