This activity builds sensory awareness and storytelling skills
It also develops language and communication skills
Ask your child to put their hand in the bag and chose a toy without looking. Ask them to describe the object by what they feel. For example, it is hard, rough, scratchy, smooth, lumpy etc.
Then ask them to create an environment for their toy.
They can create it in any way that they want. Sometimes your child might need suggestions or ideas to help them.
The following questions may prompt their creativity.
Once they have created their environment, ask them to tell you a story about the toy and where they live. You could write or record their story. (A lovely keepsake for their memory boxes.)
