A Sensory Basket Idea that is Inexpensive and Fun
The point of these sensory activities is to allow children to explore different textures of items that may be found in the home or closet. These items are easily used with other materials in the room scaffolding the sensory experience. Here are a few ideas for two sensory baskets that children really enjoy. Everything came from the discount store or were gifts that we received but never used. They are items we might not think of first when putting together a sensory container and are easy to store and pull out at a moment’s notice.
