The sensory treasure basket contains every day items around the theme of senses (except taste), perfect for children beginning to develop a deeper understanding of their senses. All the objects within the treasure basket have been carefully selected to provide a wider range of textures from very rough to smooth, a range of sounds and smell, and experience of hot and cold. Some items can change their colour or patterns as they move.
A guidance leaflet inside every basket, includes some suggestions about how to extend and develop sensory activities.
Sensory Treasure Basket
Treasure baskets are based on firm educational research into early years.
As the items in a treasure basket have not been designed as toys, children should always be supervised during play.
