One thing I am so thankful for in our day and age happens to be ziplock baggies. They are so helpful in a variety of projects especially with kids who are sensitive to touch. I have noticed it quite a few times where there is a messy craft and while the craft looks fun there is NO WAY that child will put their hands in to participate because of the texture or mess.
There are quite a few activites like finger painting that these kids won't join in and buying kid gloves for craft projects can get expensive. However, have no fear there is a cheaper method by allowing your child to put his or her hand into a baggie. This works well with squishing or smearing activities. If the baggie is too loose on their hand you can try helping keep it on with a rubberband so that they too can join in the fun.
