Sensory flower cushion:
I made this cushion for the babies in my groups, although the older children love using it too.
You can use various materials to make it as long as they are safe for little ones. I velcroed the middle of the flowers securely. which meant i could get more use out of the one resource, providing different textures to explore.
Another version for older children includes using artificial flowers velcroed on. This can then be used to discuss size, colour, shape etc and can prompt songs such as Mary Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow.
This has provided lots of fun stimulation.
