I have put a mystery item into a shoes boxes. W.,age 3, have a chance to feel inside the bag to guess what the object is. We have used descriptive words such as smooth or rough and soft or hard. After he have had a chance to feel what is in the boxes ,i have given his guesses, and reveal what the object is.
Our hands can touch and feel what is around you. This way you can find out very quickly what it is. Our hands send touch messages to our brain such as if something is hot or cold and hard or soft. When something touches our skin ,our skin cells send messages to our brain. . Some parts of our skin can feel things better than other parts. Fingers, toes, and lips are very sensitive. Some animals have special ways of feeling such as using their whiskers to move around and to detect food that they cannot see!
