25 Sensory Tray Ideas

sensory box

I love the idea of sensory boxes for natural resources. In a science center, have a box with a cup of water, dirt, and oil and have them use there hands to discover feelings of each object. Have them record what they discover.

This is a blog with sensory box ideas, among other things, for students with autism. There are some holiday themed boxes as well as nature ones. It is a great way to teach science, math, language arts, or social studies to students with autism. (Pinned by Kaitlyn)

Because my arts-and-crafts-and-junk collection in the attic has always been with this in mind... The Imagination Tree: Mini Discovery Boxes for Open-Ended Play

Mini Discovery Boxes for Open-Ended Play For a while I have been planning to put together some boxes of materials from some of our Discovery Boxes to encourage free, open-ended, investigative and creative play. I found some small boxes for just £1 each at Ikea and used them to add a range of multi-sensory materials on some low shelves that the girls can access independently.
