Today, we tackled the five senses with J, who is five. Both of her sisters made a senses book for Christmas when they were about five and she wanted to make one, too. So, we worked together to create a book similar to what they had done.
We started off by making the book. We got five pieces of construction paper – red, white, green, pink, and gold. We laid them down in layers so that a small piece of each color was showing. Carefully, we folded it over so that more layers were created. Then, we stapled it.
J chose the words for each sense and I typed them up. Print your copy by clicking here: At Christmas book PDF
After printing them, she cut the pieces of the sentences apart.
She then put the sentences together and glued them down on pages.
After gluing the sentences down, she picked items to illustrate each of the sentences.
And here is the finished product.
Finding the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and textures of the season brought a lot of fun and joy into our day. At Home.
