It Feels...

This is another 5-senses activity. We did 10 different materials, ranging from feathers to sandpaper and everything in between. We had the kids feel each piece of material and then had them glue them onto the hands. We asked the kids to describe the material and what if felt like to them.

The sandpaper felt like Poppa's face, the fake leather felt like a couch and one of them felt like…

Then I wrote the letters on some clothes pins…
