ideas for home made sensory toys


hi ladies.
ive just made a toy out of a hard plastic shopping bag hoop handle and some coloured ribbon attached to it. i got the idea from a course we go to at our sure start centre but im looking for other ideas for making simple sensory toys. things like coloured pasta in a clear bottle and that kind of thing. the net didnt actually turn that much up hense my post looking for your ideas.

or failing that simple little sensory toys u can buy in the shops ie; we got a rainbow coloured slinky in a bizare style shop at lakeside the other week.

looking forward to ur replies.
thanks in advance
xxx

I had a treasure box filled with things like loofahs, brushes and bottles with coloured water and washing up liquid in. When she was little she really liked a wooden spoon with foil wrapped around the end!

I did a similar thing. I put loads of household things in. His favourite things where one of those silver kitchen scourers, bottle brush and big shells. I go nearly everything from 1 shops, he loved it and would play with it for hours!

We've done a bottle with rice, one with curly pasta, and one with water and dish soap (he loves the bubbles). I have a bowl of pumpkin seeds that I was thinking of taking some and putting into a bottle. Other than that I just give him regular (safe) household items...flannel, soft bristled brush...oh, and our walpaper is textured (I hate it) but DS gets mezmerised forever! Hehe.
