You Will Need:

Several colorful scarves or squares of light material, an empty tissue box

Directions:

Tie the ends of the scarves together. Bunch them up and put them into the tissue box, leaving one end poking out. Hand the end of the scarf to your child so he can pull out the long strand of scarves. As each scarf appears, ask questions like, “What’s on that scarf? How does it feel?” Repeat as long as your child is interested.

Tip:

Only use under adult supervision; child might become tangled in the material.
