Fun Activity

Games with Senses

As you talk with your child, describe sights, sounds, tastes, and textures. For example, you can say: “bright light,” “clicking sound,” and “smooth yogurt.” You can also have your child close his or her eyes and describe what he or she hears. You can continue the activity with the other senses.

Go for a short walk around your neighborhood. Choose one sense, such as hearing, and ask your child to focus on that sense. Have your child name the sounds he or she hears as you point them out. On the return trip, choose a new sense and continue the activity.
