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.
