Have you ever thought about what life would be like if we couldn’t feel anything in our body?
What if we couldn’t feel the hugs of the people we love, taste our favorite food in our mouths, walk or stand without feeling what we have underneath our feet? This would result in our lives lacking many experiences and less learning.
The sense of touch is very important. Unlike the other senses, our sense of touch is constantly receiving information. Our sense of touch works through the skin, which is the largest organ in our body, and sometimes the least cared for.
We are always perceiving things through the skin such as cold, heat, an object, a texture, etc.
By stimulating the sense of touch in our children, we help them to have an image of their own body, achieving self-recognition.
Children learn about the world that surrounds them through exploration and interaction with objects. That is, through this, they manage to recognize the characteristics.
Exploring the world through touch also allows boys and girls to have unpleasant experiences to identify limits and dangers. This is very important. It is a way to save your own life and avoid pain.
Remember that the sense of touch is not only developed through objects. We can also do it through a hug and a caress; simultaneously, we strengthen emotional ties with our children.

We open the Ziploc bag and add the baby oil: the more oil we use, the better.
Then we’re going to pour the orange paint into our pumpkin bag.
We add water inside the bag, but this must be less than the amount of oil we use.
