Challenge your child’s sense of touch with this activity.
You will need:
Various picnic items: juice box, spoon, fork, cup, plate, napkin, apple, etc.
1) Show your child the items and place them in the basket.
2) Have her close her eyes, put her hands in the basket, and pick up one item (keep the lid down if possible).
3) Ask her to feel the object. Ask what she has in her hand. Have your child bring it out and check to see if she was right!
Another idea is to ask your child to find a particular item (i.e., fork) and take it out of the basket (with eyes closed, of course!)
