Go on a "Texture Walk"

Go outside for a texture walk with your child to take advantage of an excellent learning opportunity. On your walk, look for things that are soft like sand, rough like pinecones, silky like a soft leaf, or smooth like a rock. You can follow your child’s lead as he looks for new things to pick up, feel, and explore.
