A few months ago, I decided that I wanted to make a texture project for my daughter...unfortunately I do not have a sewing machine and even if I did, well I'm not so great at crafting. If you look at my blog you'll see crafts but you may also realize they are toddler crafts and don't require a lot of skill. If a craft requires me to be tedious, disastrous results will occur. So, when I came across this project made by sparetimecrafts, I was a very happy mama because I could have a really great texture book...but not have to make it.
This very pretty book also allows for a great learning experience. It has helped to teach my little girl descriptive vocabulary words such soft, rough, smooth, hard and bumpy. This sweet book introduces a world filled with wonderful tactile experiences. This is a great book for little ones who have a hard time sitting still during story time. It doesn't come with felt pieces but I use some that I have and the book as a background for a story I tell her. The texture and feeling process keep her attention. We have a lot of conversation when looking at this little book. For example, I ask her: "What else feels like this?". We also play a game with the book where I hide items around the room similar in texture to the pieces and ask her to find the other pieces similar to the material in the book. Another game could be having the child feel the page, blindfold them, and then have them find a similiar material inside of a bag.
This has a smooth feel...
I always love hearing about how my reviews lead these wonderful stores to more sales. I'd love to hear posts letting me know you decided to purchase some items!
