Sensory ideas

We have sand tables inside our classrooms and outside in our playground, but we only have sand outside in the ones in our playground; the sand is too damaging to our floors, so inside we use other sensory materials in our sandbox.

A few pictures of some of the items we use are found here....

We use:
  • Packing peanuts- both the dis solvable and non- dis solvable kind.
  • Ground up plastic
  • Ground corn meal
  • Beans
  • Rice
  • Water
  • Snow
  • Cut up paper (also including scissors to cut it up)
  • Bows
  • Corn starch and water -
  • Water
  • nature items
  • any fun, safe items we can find
Add scoops, laundry caps, funnels, spoons, magnifying glasses, and other items to enhance the fun.
