Our last month is all about the sense of touch! Activities include:
- 1-2 Experiment – Test which parts of your body have more — or fewer — touch receptors using just a paper clip!
- Make a Texture Book – explore the world around you and record what you find in a texture book.
- Learn the Braille Alphabet – make your own set of raised braille letters.
- Sand Paper Rankings – Test your sense of touch to distinguish between different grades of sand paper.
Kits are available now! Just stop by the Library during our curbside pickup hours and ask for the take and make science kit.
Sensory Sensations is a take-and-make program of science experiments and STEAM learning for kids of all ages. Each month from January to May, we will explore one of the five senses through a series of weekly experiments or projects. Most experiments can be done with items easily found at home, but we will also have packets available each month with the materials, printed instructions, and a list of related resources both in our collection and online.
