What’s in the box?
(Ideal for children from Nursery upwards.)
You will need:
-a range of objects to
What to do:
1. Get a large cardboard box and cut 2 holes in it big enough to poke your hands through or, if you don’t have a box you could use a blindfold to prevent the child seeing the objects.
2. Gather a group of objects from around the house. Try to pick things that feel quite different for example an orange, a sponge, a peg, playdough, some string.
3. Put your hands through the holes in the box and try to describe the objects then guess whatthey are. The science bit: We have 5 senses that we use to experience the world around us- smell, taste, sight, hearing and touch. In this experiment, you are using just one- touch.
Additional task: You could try putting things with different scents in a small pot and guessing what they are by smelling them.
