It's time to get in touch with your feelings. Not those feelings. The other kind.
It's called "stereognosis," or the ability to recognize and perceive objects through texture, size, spatial properties, and temperature. Give yours a workout with a game of Touchy Feely.
Just draw a card, then reach into the nylon Tube of Touch to find the object shown on the card using only your sense of touch. It sounds easy enough, but identifying something based exclusively on tactile perception is a skill that's rarely exercised, making Touchy Feely, more challenging than you'd think.
Play the game solo in a race against time or challenge an opponent to see who can find the object first. Either way, you'll get in touch with your feelings and exercise your sensory perception, memory, and fine motor skill while having fun.
Another cool note about Touchy Feely: we consulted with two Occupational Therapists as we developed the game and used their insights to select the 26 objects included for their unique tactile and sensory stimulating characteristics.

How To Play
Draw a card from the deck, then reach into the tube of touch and try to find the object on your card only by feel. You can play solo in a race against time or race another person to see who can find the object first. To increase the difficulty level, draw four cards and lay them face up. After 30 seconds, flip them over and try to find all three items.Download PDF Rules Of The Game
