Touch and Feel Sensory Sticks
Glue different textures on popsicle sticks for an easy and portable sensory play idea
Sensory play is a crucial component of early childhood learning and development. This easy project focuses on touch and feel sensors, which are critical for developing your child’s tactile skills.
To make these sensory sticks just glue different textures on large popsicle sticks. The size of these sticks makes them endlessly portable – throw a few in your bag for trips to doctors’ offices or other appointments. Be sure to supervise your child while they play with the sensory sticks. Use narration to talk about the different textures of the materials. “You found the red stick. That one is rough and scratchy!”
