Sensory Feely cards
These simple home made tactile cards are easy to make and great for sensory play.
Anything can be added to the laminated cards within reason to develop the sense of touch as well as language skills.
This activity can be developed further by making smaller cards for older children and making them into matching sets.
The activity can also help to develop colour recognition as well as develop pattern recognition depending on materials used.
The silky and rough materials used for these cards were various pieces of ribbon which had completely different contrasts.
The bumpy card was made up using packaging out of an old chocolate box.
The smooth card was made using neoprene (funky foam).
The soft card was made up using soft wool fabric and the fluffy one speaks for itself.
This can be made into a much bigger set depending on the materials used and the words you want to use to develop the child's vocabulary.
Have fun making yours!
