Textured Touch

Textured Touch (9)

This advanced texture game will delight toddlers because it also contains an element of surprise!

Cut two holes in the top of a flat box (such as a tie or scarf box).

Next, gather together a variety of fabrics and materials. We had burlap, felt, cotton, silk, wrapping paper, and sandpaper, for lots of nice contrast.

One at a time, I placed a piece of material under the lid and showed her how to poke a finger through to explore.

She looked so intrigued by the mystery of it!

I put my finger in the second hole so I could describe the texture to her. Burlap, for example, was bumpy and rough. Then we lifted the lid to see what we’d been feeling!

Wrapping paper was next, smooth and slippery. Soon, Veronika loved being the one to remove the lid and discover what was inside.

The lid definitely adds a fun element to the game, since toddlers will adore putting it on and off between each new material.

We played a second version of the game in a paper bag. Again, she loved the surprise of reaching in…

…and lifting out a new fabric with delight each time.

Talk about all the different textures as you play this version of the game, too. The more descriptive your words, the better!

Chances are, your little one will be busy putting the fabric in and out of the bag for a while. Boxes plus bags plus fabric, oh my! This game was a winner.
