Touch is by far the most interesting and necessary of the 'five senses'.

I focus on crafting projects for my son which let him explore all sorts of textures and allow him to actively use his senses as he explores the world.

As a crafter I have a storage of various types of papers at home. And I find it to be one of the best sources to put his 'touch' sense to work. Touching and sensing different types of material helps a child learn about the environment as a whole!

This is a Christmas themed activity.

All you need is:

- A cardstock paper 12 x 10 (or your desirable size)

- Triangles cut out from various papers of green shade such as
   Crepe paper
   Handmade paper
   Silk paper
   Kite paper
   Cardstock paper
   chart paper
 
- Rectangles cut from a brown cardstock paper

- Glue (child friendly)


As we did the activity, we talked about the shapes- Triangle and Rectangle, the number of sides of these shapes, the colors- green and brown and how they look good together. We counted number of triangles and rectangles at the end.

Learning opportunities:

1. Sensory skills development

2. Hand and eye coordination

3. Fine motor development (arranging, sticking)

4. Shapes (Math)

5. Counting (Math)


My son is 2.6 years old.

Hi everyone!

I did a quick Christmas themed activity with my son. We made a simple card with do-a-dot green color marker.


Do-a-dot markers are Shaunak's favorite. They help improve hand eye coordination as kids can direct the stamp at their exact aim on the paper. They are also very easy to hold.

If you haven't let your kids paint with do-a-dot yet, then you should probably do it soon and enjoy watching them go stamp-stamp!!

All you need is:

- A cardtsock paper 12 x 10 (or your desirable size)

- Green do-a-dot marker

- Black and brown pens to mark tree borders and trunk

I drew shape of a Christmas tree with black marker and let my son use his favorite do-a-dot to fill it.
As we did the activity, we talked about the colors- green and brown, about Christmas and the shape-circle (the dot).

Learning opportunities:

1. Hand and eye coordination

2. Colors and Shapes

3. Fun

Hello readers!

My toddler is ever excited about the planets and galaxies. And Sun is his favorite. So we did a quick simple fork activity together which put his small muscles of the hands (fine motor skills) to work.



All you need is:

A fork, plastic or metal, both work

A cardtsock paper (your desirable size)

Craft Paint- Yellow, Orange

A recycled lid to trace a circle

Crayons - Yellow, Orange

Trace a circle in the middle with a recycled lid. Tracing is a great activity for improving fine motor skills.
Color the circle with yellow and orage crayons.
Dip the fork in orange paint and press on the circle border. Revolve the paper round as you proceed and make fork marks all around the circle. It looks like sun rays.

Use of fork makes this such a easy and fun craft!

All you need is paint and fork!

Learning opportunities:

1. Fine motor skills

2. Art skills

3. Hand and eye coordination

Sensory tray is one of the most powerful tool I use as a parent to keep my son busy which engages his senses and leads to a great open-ended play. Playing and learning through our senses helps our brains develop and make strong neural connections.

I created a flora themed sensory tray for my son to explore. It was easy to do.




Read on to see how simple it is to create a sensory play experience.

All you need is:

- Tray
- Flowers (natural and artificial)
- Leaves  (natural and artificial)

This activity is very flexible in which items you use.

I gathered as many flowers, petals, and leaves that I could come up with, and set it in a tray. Done. Super simple tray for the win!

After an hour all we had was a marvelous mess at the sensory table!

Learning opportunities:

1. Play based learning

2. Fun

3. Imaginative play

4. Development of 5 important senses

5. Fine motor skills, squeezing, plucking
