Second, I glued them onto a large piece of butcher paper that we use on our easel from Ikea.
Third, I had T walk across the texture road a few times to get a feel for it all.
And lastly, I asked him to describe how each texture looked and felt. The felt was "orange and soft." The wooden sticks were "long, hard, colorful." The feathers were "soft and tickly." So you get the idea; that's pretty much what all I got from him and then he was ready to move on!
