Learning textures with Alphabets

26 Nov

Alphabets crafts and activities are good for toddlers and preschoolers as they get familiar with different letters and their shapes and phonetic sounds before learning to speak, read and write them.

Learning Textures with Alphabets is a sensory activity that involves the touch sense to feel textures and differentiate between them. It also teach alphabets and colors while at it.

Learning different textures with Alphabets

For Learning Textures with Alphabets, things required are: different textures (you can use paper, foam, cloth or cotton. The idea is to get as many different kind of textures as you can eg: rough, smooth, soft, hard, ridged, grainy, bumpy), different colors cardstock papers, paper cutter, glue or I prefer double tape for this one, and pencil.

Draw and cut different alphabets on different textures (need not be all the 26, you can choose any of them). Then make outline of each letter on a color paper leaving a gap of about an inch on all sides and cut it out.

Now add double tape on the back side of the letters and paste them on their outlined cut out paper.

It’s time for your sweetheart to touch and feel the letters while you teach them the different textures and alphabets along with their colors. Mine said “Mumma, its rough!”


Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If you children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be done by an adult.
