Brilliant home made resource for both babies and older children. I use these with the babies as a sensory tickling game. They are made from kitchen roles and various pieces of fabric wrapped around them with different textures.
Older children love them to....roll them across their hands or feet.
They fit perfect into a shoe box too.
Brilliant for language development: rough, smooth, furry, fluffy, soft, .....
Great resource to make from recycling too!
