Do You Feel What I Feel?

A pillowIntroducing a feely bag to children will encourage their thinking, predicting, sorting and analyzing skills. Feely bags will also encourage the use of enriched language skills as children describe what they feel.

What you need:


  1. Allow children to take turns putting their hands into the bag and feeling the object.
  2. Ask them to describe the object using words such as hard, soft, flat, round.
  3. Record their ideas.
  4. After a child has described what she feels, allow her to guess what the object is.
