Mystery Material Boxes

We had a great time using mystery boxes and guessing what was inside. Here are some of the items we had to guess and descibe using our sense of touch only:


Furry mittens

Sponge and wire wool

Watermelon and sweetcorn

A rubber baking tray

We had to put our hands inside the box without looking and then guess what we were feeling and write a description of how it felt.

We were not quite sure what to expect inside the boxes, we used words such as: fluffy, soft, hard, smooth, flexible, rubber, grassy, wet, squishy and rough to describe the different objects. Here are some of our reactions to what was inside the box.
