Let's do this!

Favorite and conveniently book Kid Experts for sessions throughout the site.

Children use all of their five senses to learn about the world around them. In this fun and hands-on activity, your child will practice using the sense of touch to gather information about the world. We will have fun guessing what objects are based only upon how they feel. We’ll talk about textures and extend our vocabularies as we describe how things feel in this fun game!
