High five for our sense of touch!

High five for our sense of touch!

We spent time exploring our hands and if you are going to explore your hands, you just have to add a little high five into the mix…

High Five for our Sense of Touch!

I made a few DIY hand-shaped sensory cards for the children to explore their sense of touch…

The children were invited to stop by throughout the day to give the hands a high five and to feel how each card might be just a little bit different…

We had hands that were rough, soft, smooth, bumpy,  sticky, and fluffy…

This little guy liked to feel all the cards with his eyes closed first and then tell us what he felt. I thought that was an excellent idea!
