Wet or Dry Learning Activities
Touch & Feel Activities!
If your child learns best by FEELING the difference between wet and dry:
- Have your child examine a dry cloth or cloth underwear. Have him/her dunk it in a bowl of water and examine it again. Stack up several cloth items for your child to explore.
- Have a little scavenger hunt to find objects for your very own wet-dry demonstration. Gather up items such as a sprinkling can or salt shaker filled with water. Start by touching the dry object, then sprinkle and feel how the same object feels when wet. Talk about how wet and dry feel.
- Let your child feel wet and dry first-hand with a pair of mittens (or socks). Keep one mitten dry, then dunk, squirt or sprinkle the other mitten. Let your child try both of them on and see what each one feels like. Talk about the difference. Which feels better?
- Take note of wet and dry things throughout your day and let your child feel each one with your guidance. Some examples: water from a fountain, sand on a beach.
- Use PULL-UPS® Training Pants with Wetness Liner to help your child potty train by feeling the difference between wet and dry.
- Next, try out the Take-a-Look activities to see if feeling the difference works best for your Big Kid®.
