8 Super Cool Sensory Compounds!
The sense of touch enables us to feel a variety of sensations, such as temperature, pressure, pain, vibration, and texture. Our brains can typically determine how a texture will feel just by looking at it. For example, looking at a pillow, we can assume that it will likely be soft. However, some textures and consistencies are less predictable and therefore more intriguing for our brains (hence the recent slime craze). Kids and adults are fascinated by unique textures and have an internal motivation and drive to touch and see how they feel. Touching and playing with different textures and consistencies can be pleasurable, intrinsically motivating and fun. Some textures are calming and soothing, while others are alerting.
If your kids love the feel of slime, check out these interesting compounds that are guaranteed to fascinate and engage them in play, while developing perception, imagination and motor skills.
