Texture Book

ages 2-5


Paper, various materials around the house, crayons or markers.

Activity Detail

Help your child create a book on different textures using materials around the house. Some textures that you can explore are smooth, rough, crinkly, soft, hard, and sticky. Materials that you can use to illustrate these textures can be cotton, sandpaper, aluminum foil, wrapping paper, tape or fabric. Make a blank book by folding several pieces of paper in half together (if you have a big enough stapler, you can staple down the middle to hold the book together). Glue the materials one to a page and label each object as smooth, rough, etc. Finish up your project by decorating the front cover!

This would be a fun activity to do on a rainy day.

I wasn't sure how to secure the book without a big stapler and think that an alternative for fastening it together should be included. It is great activity for teaching textures to younger kids, but I'm not sure how engaging it would be for 4-5 year olds.

A variation on this activity is to make the book and then create a game of having your child find similarly-textured items in their room, toybin, et cetera.
