Christmas themed Sensory Activity


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.
