The book "Lucy's Picture" by Nicola Moon (I think) is a good one to use. It's about a little girl who makes a collage feely-picture for her Grandad who is blind. Lovely story and great illustrations, and it can spark off all sorts of discussions and creative work with the children. Also extends vocabulary such as soft, furry, hard, spiky, etc.

We've just had a brilliant afternoon celebrating the opening of our new sensory garden. We have tried to include things to stimulate all 5 senses.

We have a bird table in a patch of grasses which rustle in the wind, a bench under an arch which will eventually have honeysuckle over it, windchimes and mobiles (including old CDs), herbs in a raised bed accessable to those who can't reach the ground, a winding path of stepping stones in different shapes and textures, lengths of pipe to run a stick across, a patch of concrete with interesting shells, beads, mirror tiles etc set into it. We have put picture labels of the senses - nose eyes etc - around the garden.

We have turned a small tatty patch of tarmac bordered by prickly straggly hedge into a wonderful resource and are feeling very pleased with ourselves.
