One of the enjoyable things about bringing up children is to watch their personalities unfold, and along with that, their preferences, inclinations and quirks.
Recently, at our Botanic Gardens outing, my gf commented that Bubbles was a very 'tactile' kid. Indeed she is!
She loves textures, and enjoys exploring different sensations with her hands and feet. At a park, while other kids are playing ball, she would prefer to touch all the different rocks, grass, leaves and branches. You would also often find her stooping down to grab gravel and soil from the ground, squishing them with her hands and letting the grains fall between her little fingers.
When painting, she would often prefer to feel the paints on her skin than to put them on paper!
Here's her at sand play. One of her favourite activities!
Why wear shoes when they can be used for scooping sand?
Pleased as pie at finding a good-sized rock
