To know that skin is sensitive to touch

Perhaps your child could shut their eyes and you touch their cheeks, arms, ears etc. and your child could tell you what part of their body you are touching. Then swap over. Discuss the fact that we can feel all over our bodies; that we feel with our skin; and that the most sensitive parts of our bodies include our fingertips and mouth. 


Make some musical shakers

Use empty tins, yoghurt pots with a top (e.g. cover with tin foil or material). Jam jars or empty pringle containers. Fill these containers with rice, pasta, sand or salt. You could also use nuts and screws for a different musical sounds. Can you make a quiet/loud sound? Which container makes the quietest sound? Which sound is your favourite?

Perhaps you can add this to your percussion instrument and play guess the tune.
