My Five Senses  by Margaret Miller

This was a great book to introduce to preschoolers the concept of your five senses!

For the activity, we used a marshmallow to talk about our senses. Each child used hand sanitizer and then received a marshmallow. First, we touched the marshmallow and talked about it being squishy and gooey on the inside. We smelled the marshmallow and talked about the sweet smell. We looked at the marshmallow and came up with some words to describe how it looked. Then we tried to hear the marshmallow and while most of us didn’t think it had a sound, one child said he could hear it squishing in his ear. Finally, we tasted the marshmallow and everyone agreed that it was delicious!
