To develop their tactile skills

Materials Needed

Several small items that children recognize
Box for the items.
Sack for one item


First, you will gather some small items that children can recognize. For example, you can use a pencil, pen, eraser, chalk, chalk eraser, marker, different coins, and other small items.

Then, you will place them in a box so you can have them ready for the exercise.

When you are ready to start, you will have the students gather around a table. You will place the items on the table and go over each item with the students.

Then, you will place one item in the sack and have a student reach into the sack without looking and feel the item. You will have them guess what the item is by the feel of it.

You can use a different item for each student.


You can reward them for guessing the object.
