High five for our sense of touch!

Explore the sense of touch with this simple DIY!

We spent time exploring our hands and if you are going to explore your hands, you just have to add a little high five into the mix.

Exploring Textures

I made a few DIY hand-shaped sensory cards for the children to explore their sense of touch.

The children were invited to stop by throughout the day to give the hands a high five and to feel how each card might be just a little bit different.

Describing Textures

We invited the children to describe the different textures they were feeling.

We had hands that were rough, soft, smooth, bumpy,  sticky, and fluffy.

This little guy liked to feel all the cards with his eyes closed first and then tell us what he felt. I thought that was an excellent idea!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
