Letter T Crafts and Activities
Create a texture board
* Firm board (wood or foam mounting board works well)
* Various items with texture: Velcro pieces, flannel, cotton balls, sandpaper, plastic, rubber cement, etc.
Attach the various texture items to the board firmly. Have the child touch each one with fingers and describe how it feels. After they’ve identified all the textures, put a blindfold on and have them feel and guess which item it is. You can also make a texture box by putting various items into a box with a hole in the top and having the child reach in and feel the item and guess before they pull it out to see if it’s right. This is a fun way to learn what things feel like and learn about identifying.
