Exploration and Texture Sensory Rounds

Exploration and Texture n Sensory Rounds:

I used the regular salt playdough recipe to make these exploration and texture sensory rounds. Before I put some of the salt playdough in the random containers, I added beans, wood shapes, sensory balls to some of the bottoms and some on the tops to add texture to each shape to make them different. Each shape is a different sensory texture for the children to explore. The second picture is when I just made them and the first picture is when they are drying and I added two layers of mod podge to them to prevent beaking and cracking. Great to add a magnifying glass to for sight exploration and great for hands on touching for tactile experiences, homemade.

These are a great way to allow children to explore their senses. I always enjoy finding new Montessori-inspired Blogs. I'm looking forward to having more of a look around.

I have added your Blog to our Montessori Madness Share Group on TEN: The Education Network. Please stop by and have a look at some other great Montessori sites and Blogs.
