TEXTURE is the look and feel of a surface. Texture can be bumpy, rough, smooth, slimy, fluffy, etc. Go on a texture hunt through your house or your yard. See how many different textures you can find.
Peel the paper off of some old crayons. Broken crayons work great for making texture! (You can find directions for Rainbow Crayons on the "Recipes" page to the left if you want to make your own crayons for this activity.) Put paper on top of the surface that you found. Lay the crayon on it's side. In class we always say "Lay your crayon down for a nap." Then rub the crayon onto the paper to see what texture will show up on your paper.
