Sensory Sunday - Touchy Feely Frames



As you know, sensory play is one of our favourite activities! I am trying to move away from traditional plastic toys and make our own fun. I've been reading a lot into the Montessori way of learning and I'm so impressed. I've seen lots of amazing sensory boards on Pinterest so I decided to give it a go.

I had a packet of plastic frames in the cupboard that we had never used, so I very carefully removed all of the glass leaving just the cardboard backing frame behind. I then headed to Mum's house and raided her craft cupboard (she used to have a little craft shop selling all sorts of goodies).


I then went through my basket and selected which materials I was going to use. I wanted Lilly to have a variety of textures to explore. I heated up my hot glue gun and attached each material to the back board of each frame and then I just popped it back in as if it were just a normal photo. I contemplated gluing the frames to a piece of MDF but I like the idea of being able to lay out just a few frames at a time and Lilly loves picking them up and exploring both the front and backs of the frames.
