On rainy days, we always try to find a craft that is new and different. We found this one on a website that I can't remember right now..
- Cut up pieces of felt, fabric, sandpaper, textured paper, velvet, anything with texture. It is amazing what you can find in your house once you start looking.
- Put the little pieces in bowls, give your child a glue stick and some paper, and let them create.
- For smaller children, Make buildings, and cut out squares of the textured papers and have each building's "windows" have a different texture. Have them feel each one afterwards.
