Stimulating Sense of Touch- Activity 2

What's in the bag?

Get a clean cloth bag. 
Look for different items of different materials to put into the bag. 

Get your child to put his/her hand into the bag to feel for things. Do allow your child to pull out the item to see what it is. You will be surprised that your baby will love this simple game. It stimulate a different part of the brain as your child is interpreting through only the sense of touch, instead of sense of sight first. 

Depending on the age of your child, you can choose different items of different materials to put into the bag. For younger children, bigger items would be better. For older children, you can choose to put in smaller items and in fact, get them to guess what's inside the bag. My older children still love to play this game. 

Suggested items: 
For younger children, 
  • Plastic bottles ( perhaps yakult bottle)
  • sponge
  • a piece of plastic bags cut into a square
  • comb
  • socks( rolled into a ball) 
  • spoons
For older children 
  • coins
  • pencils
  • toothpicks
  • erasers
  • cotton balls
Simply look around you and i'm sure you can find lots of things to put inside your little bag.
