So what’s the BIG idea?
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.
