Family Fun

We are all made with five senses, sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. Today explore these senses in a fun way using some of the examples below:-

  • Sight- Hunt the thimble – a game popular when I was young. Hiding a small object in a room and looking for it. You can give hints by saying ‘warmer” as they get close or “colder” as they move away from it.

Other small objects eraser, small toy, hockey puck.

  • Hearing- find a few objects and place in a plastic container. Try to identify what they are just by shaking the container- examples rice, small toy car, golf ball or other small hard ball, or sit by a window and listen to the sounds outside.
  • Touch- place objects in a large bowl and cover with dry pasta, or rice, or shredded paper and dip in and see what you can find.

  • Taste- place different things to taste in small containers with spoons or use baby food to identify the different tastes.
  • Smell- place different things in jars and identify what they are just by smelling them.

All the different parts of the body are made to work together for the good of all.
