Let your child learn by touching. Take a piece of paper and using a pen punch little hole all over the paper. You can make shapes, numbers, lines, circles, or whatever your child might be learning at the time. Then turn the paper over and let your child feel the bumps that were created from the poked holes. Have your toddler trace over the bumps with her finger and talk about the shape, or letter. Then you can let her take a crayon and draw from eat “dot” to the next one. This is a great activity for when you are traveling and don’t want to bring a lot of toys!
