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
tin foil
pine nuts
foil mesh
pipe cleaners

Any more ideas on what I could use?

  1. Hi! Came across your blog through TGIF Linky Party. This is such a wonderful idea! I hope you won’t mind if I will try this too. Thanks for sharing!

  2. 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.

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. Found you on Ducks ‘n a Row Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop….tee hee hee. Oh yeah, that’s MY blog hop! Am so happy to have featured you in the post but sure hope they all click on THIS link as well. You really do have great ideas, Natasha.

  5. 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.

  6. Just a reminder…this looks like a fun activity BUT something to do with your child vs. leaving your child ALONE with the sensory boards….I see lots of chocking hazards!

  7. i used to love doing things like this as a kid, i used to do them with my nan, we used lentils , those are good fun.

  8. Such a neat idea. I love it, so simple and straightforward but so fun! I’d use different foods, leaves and flowers and things like sponges.

  9. My little boys are always hoarding items because they like the way they look or feel, shells, lego bricks etc, this would be a perfect task to do with them.

  10. great idea! I’m going to put one together for my baby granddaughter who is just learning to use her hands to touch things.

  11. You are full of great ideas! Sensory objects I find are great for children, even some adults, as it distracts the mind so well x
