Tactile Fun with Textures

ages 0-6


Several 4X4 squares of various textured materials; shower curtain ring; hole puncher

Activity Detail

Using different textured materials (e.g. corduroy, silk, wool, etc.), cut out 4X4 squares of the materials and then punch hole in one corner. Hang all of the fabrics together on a single shower curtain ring. Babies can use this to explore different textures, toddlers can find new descriptive words for the feel of the various materials, and 5 and 6 year olds can close their eyes and guess the fabric, as well as name other things that feel the same way. For example, if they guess that the texture is rough sand paper, they could try to name other rough objects.
