Different Textures

What You Need:

  • Paper
  • Stapler
  • Fabric with different textures (fleece, burlap, corduroy, felt, silk, satin, lace, wool, cotton, etc.)
  • Variety of other textured materials (corrugated material, bubble wrap, sandpaper, foil, feathers, plastic, cellophane, etc.)
  • Glue
  • Marker

What You Do:

  1. Locate an assortment of textures from the above materials list, and place them onto the work surface so your kid has plenty of options to choose from. Encourage them to set aside a variety of textures that they like.
  2. Next, have them glue each kind of texture material onto a different piece of paper. Let dry.
  3. Sit with them and go through the pages of their book. Ask them to touch each texture, and use a few words to describe how each page feels. Help them write their words next to each material.
  4. Stack the pieces of paper on top of one another and staple them together.

Now, your kid has their very own interactive book! As they flip through the pages, they'll get to know the different textures while they practice reading the words they chose to describe them.
