VROOM Video: Texture Talk

Use household items to explore your child’s sense of touch.  “Is this potato rough and bumpy?  What about this banana?  Is it smooth?”  Find other things to touch, like a cracker or dried beans, ask questions about texture and shape.

Brainy Background powered by Mind in the Making: Children learn from their senses, like their sense of touch.  When your child explores her senses, like touch, you are helping her organize and explain her experiences.  By letting your child come to her own conclusions, you are helping her think like a scientist.
