Stereognosis is the ability to use your fingers to feel and know what you are holding, without seeing what you are holding. It is always hard to get kids to feel and find objects without looking. You can put up a barrier, but they always try to peek. This cup is a great idea to keep the objects hidden, and make it hard to look.
This plastic container is the size of a large sour cream or cottage cheese container. I put a fuzzy sock over the container, and the child puts their hand into the sock opening to feel for what is inside the container.
This could be a fun game of finding a specific item hidden, or having the student tell what they feel.
