Mud. Dirt. Paint. I love the way it feels when I work with my hands. Chances are, your child might, too. Playing with wet textures like mud, wet sand, and dough gives your child the opportunity to explore their world through the sense of touch. Whatever medium you may be using, encourage your child to talk about what they feel. Is it wet? Is it squishy? What could we do with it? Could we paint with it? Try adding water a little bit at a time and see what happens to it. Get messy! You can always hose 'em off later. Fun!

Thanks for the idea Bernadette
