Describing items by attributes: softest and hardest

Gather 3 balls and have your child touch each item and discuss if the item is hard or soft. Then put the items in order from softest to hardest. Ex: cotton ball, rubber ball, marble.

Then line the balls up and let your child try to thump the ball and see how far it moves. You can use yarn to mark how far the ball moved. Talk about which went the longest distance. Why do you think it traveled farther?
