I have wanted to get the boys some tactile sensory toys. However, I thought I would save money and make some tactile sensory items myself.
Andrew went shopping with me and we got our items. I have a box full of pasta. A box full of rice. Another box full of beans. Inside each box has small toys. I am trying to teach the boys to put their hands in the boxes and play with the contents inside. This is a great way for them to get the tactile sensory input that they need daily. The tactile system is required for children to coordinate, organize, discriminate and interpret touch appropriately.
Now, I need to think of some more to make!!!
