Example of soft & hard objects?

I am going to teach a group of nursery children how to differentiate soft and hard objects.

I am going to bring in some soft and hard objects to the classroom to let them see.

Can someone give me some examples of objects of soft & hard objects that can be bring into the classroom?

    -babies soft teddy

    -babies hairbrush


    -velvet or fluffy material




    -brick (toy one)


    If you want to do a food experience:


    -cheese spread






    If you want to make things a but harder for the more able children:

    -nail brush-which parts hard, which parts soft

    -juggle balls-soft to touch but you cant really squeeze them

    Look up a collection of books could

    “thats not my…” they are great for tactile activities!!!

    I personally like the Good Bad Boy’s or is that the Bad good Boy’s? I also like the guy’s that are themselves above all else and have a understanding of what being in a relationship means that it is a fifty fifty partnership, a guy that doesn’t want to change me into someone I’m not but loves me unconditionally, someone that can make me laugh but doesn’t mind if I cry on his shoulder too,A guy that is my best friend and that I can Communicate with about any thing and that we have mutual Respect for eacother and total trust. That’s the type of guy’s i like

    It would be interesting to make 2 playdough balls…let one harden completely and keep one in a bag so it stays soft.

    a dry sponge and a wet sponge. (Not a brand new dry sponge-one that has been used and has dried out on its own).

    plastic “easter” eggs with a pom pom inside.

    pencil and pencil shavings/crayon and crayon shavings (pencil shavings are a lot softer but keep them in a bag or a container and don’t let them sniff!)

    There are great books that are full of textures. Check your local library. You can make a texture “board” as well.

    Good luck.
