Tactile children like to help so make the most of everyday activities such as tidying up. Rather than putting toys in the same place and the same way, mix it up and have it be a learning experience. For example, today you may ask them to put all the trucks in one basket, or all the red dresses together and tomorrow the cars go in the basket and blue items get placed together.

Even mundane things like tidying the shoes can be a learning experience.
