What you need: crayons, paper, and hard surfaces with different textures.

Show children how to rub the crayon over the paper to transfer the texture of a surface. Good surfaces include wood grain, woven chair seats, textured walls, and bumpy plastic.

After the rubbings are made, let children feel the different surfaces while you describe them – rough, bumpy, etc. Show them how the crayon rubbings look and feel similar to the surface you used to make them.
