Easy Toddler Activity

So what’s the BIG idea?

Here, your taby, toddler, or preschooler is working on a vertical surface. This is strengthening his core and arm muscles for future skills such as throwing and swinging.

Your child is also discovering new textures.

According to, Loose Parts 2 , “Touching is the most fundamental means of contact with the world.”

The book continues to state, “Since our skin is one of the most sensitive parts of our body and provides much information about the world and it’s messages, it makes sense that young children spend so much time exploring how touch feels to their bodies”

Isn’t that powerful?!

Sounds like touch and texture needs to be integrated into more daily preschool activities.

This rainy day indoor game will wake up their brains and you can also sneak in some important terms such as spheres and three-dimensional shapes. Read more here.
