Sense of Touch Activity for Preschoolers

Sense of Touch Preschool Activity.jpg

 

A while ago I did a Sense of Taste activity with my preschooler. it was such a hit that we did a similar activity to learn about our Sense of Touch.  I gathered objects with as many different textures as I could think of.  I made a little label for each texture, and grabbed some tape. First, I read all the sense of touch labels to my preschooler.  Then, she picked one item at a time.  We talked about what it felt like and reviewed our touch labels.  Then, she decided what texture it was and I let her tape the labels to each item.   Using the tape was probably her favorite part.

 

Sense of Touch Preschool activity  

 

Here are the sense of touch labels and which items we used:

 

cold: ice

sticky: tape

rough: sand paper

soft: small plush toy

smooth: cup

fluffy: cotton ball

wet: water

crinkly: plastic bag

hard: book

squishy: playdough

 

You could come up with lots of other ideas, but this is what we had on hand.
