Day Twelve

Theme: Senses


The senses help us to experience the world. Seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching allow us to learn about one another. They also make us different from one another. You may love the taste of carrots, while your friend may yuck them. You may love the color purple, and your friend may love the color green. 

Our senses can also change and adapt. Have you ever not liked a particular food and then one day you suddenly liked it? Or maybe you didn't care for a song and then found yourself singing it.

Touch connects us to the world around us. All of our senses are more alive when we spend time in nature. They have the chance to do the work they are meant to do.  It's important to balance time between computers and spending time in nature. Our senses gain strength in the natural world.













Intuition is another one of our senses that we don't always think about. Each of us has this sixth sense. Sensing with our mind and feeling with our body helps us to make choices. When something feels wrong, it's important to listen to that feeling. Have you ever had a time where you listened to a feeling? 

Activity: Senses Scavenger Hunt 

Hearing/Sound - Make 10 different sounds with your voice. You can try animal sounds, whistling and others. Ask someone in your family to make a couple different sounds.
Touch - Find 10 different textures to touch. Notice the differences. 
Taste - Over the next few days, see if you can taste something salty, sweet, bitter, and sour.
Sight/Seeing - In your yard or on a walk, can you find the colors of the rainbow?
Smell - Our sense of smell is the longest memory. Can you name 3 smells that you love. What do those smells remind you of? 
Intuition - Write down numbers 1 to 5 on white cards or squares of paper. Turn them over and see how many times you can choose the right number by using your intuition. Or have your parent hold one of the numbers and guess which number they're holding. Try not to use your brain, but more of your feeling.
