One of our summer projects was to make a sensory mat. You can use these, to help kids start to write, or for quiet time. My 5 year old loves this.
What you need to make the sensory mat:
– Large gallon freezer ziplock bag
– Hair gel
– Food coloring
These are really easy to make, put all your ingredients in your Ziplock bag and mix everything together. Lay your bag flat, make sure you have all the air out, and then close the bag. to make it more secure, and to be sure mess occurs, with a bag opening, I tape the top part, so it can’t be opened.
This is good for fine motor skills in little kids.
