Sensory Walk

We went on a picnic and I set up a sensory walk for the families to try.
I used old pizza boxes and glued different materials in each box.
Corks  and  felts that go on the bottom of chairs and table legs.
Toilet paper tubes cut in half and curly dried grass.
Milk jug lids and cotton.
I was worried since it was outside that the children wouldn't think of
taking their shoes off
so I left a note.
The children loved it and walked over it again and again.
I encouraged the parents to give it a try too.
We tried to think of different ways to describe how each felt to them.
And asked which material they liked the best and liked the least.
Today I brought it to school and set it out as an activity in the gym.
