Senses: Touch

This is the second part of our senses series, touch. If you missed Sound, you can go here!  Below are activities, printables, and book suggestions all about the sense of touch.

Activities involving touch

  • Take different types of fruit/vegetables, close your eyes.  Feel them with your fingers.  Do they feel soft or hard?  What shape are they?  Is the surface smooth or bumpy? Is it large or small? Is it hot or cold?  Place the fruit up against your face.  Does it feel different?
  •  Have a station set up with different textures of surfaces.  Ex: Fabric, paper, sand paper, metal, plastic
  • Tag the object.  Place a couple of objects out.  Without looking, have another choose which object they are to find.  Only by touching are they able to guess which one matches.
  • Texture walk: Feel the different textures of the trees, leaves (alive vs dead), different types of ground.
  • Different types of cooked pasta.  How do they differ?  Are they smooth or rough?  Are they large or small?



Do you have any fun activities, crafts or books about touch? Please share!
