Photobucket Kids learn using all their senses, it's important to tap into that and let them explore and play with different textures. This simple game can be used in so many ways. You can chose just 2 opposing textures for younger children or as many as you can find for older ones. 1. Gather your materials. You will need some card stock ( I used business cards),glue, feathers, sand, bubble wrap and foil. Photobucket 2. Prep your textures for gluing , trim your feathers, cut your bubble wrap and press your nail over the foil to make it super smooth. Photobucket 3. Glue them on. Let dry. Photobucket 4. Play. We explored them all first , the I mixed them up and asked my 2 year old to match them up, while I labeled the textures for him. Photobucket
