I saw this idea on the web somewhere (not sure where now) and knew I had to do it right away. I picked D up a bag of gourds from the grocery store. Each gourd with their own textures, some are bumpy, some smooth, some long and some small. I sat him down with this activity when he woke up from his nap and while I was folding laundry. He sat and took several of the gourds out and tried to eat them. It kept him busy for a good 15 mins.
