Sensory Boards

I've made a few sensory boards for my 2 youngest kids
I made them from a cereal box,. Each one is 8cm x 6cm
I've made 12 in total


Here's what I used:

match sticks
coloured paper clips
macaroni
feathers
buttons
tin foil
pine nuts
foil mesh
glitter
pompoms
sequins
pipe cleaners

Any more ideas on what I could use?

  11. I just started working on a bunch of these this week for my boys. Well, I've cut out some of the boards, so that's a start :) I think that rice and tree bark would work well here.

  14. I like this idea for a quick sensory activity. There is no prep, and you can just pull them out whenever you need something quick and easy. Excellent idea. :-)

  25. How about velcro, sandpaper, fur, satin. Also shells and a ziplock bag with a bit of paint in it. Put in the paint until there is enough to create a layer when the bag is placed flat. Then zip it shut, fold the top over and secure with strong tape, then stick it onto the board.
    Love this idea, thanks for sharing.

  26. What a great and simple activity! My daughter is only 3 months right now, so I'm collecting great toddler activities now!

  27. Wow, I'm so impressed how you used stuff I would never think of. I've also done a texture board for my kids, but it's very simple - I've just used different types of fabric. You can see it here - http://stepfordska-supruga-en.blogspot.com/2012/10/diy-texture-board-and-picturebook.html
