Sticky-icky-icky – Sensory play

February 2, 2014

Today’s activity was exploring a new texture..

I covered a chopping board in sticky back plastic and then sat it in front of Dexter.
When he put his hands on it they stuck slightly which was completely new.
I stood him up and let him have a go at lifting his feet up and down and then sat him back down and stuck some toys to it.
It’s a great little project to try, it doesn’t make any mess and it’s a new discovery.
It was good to see him try and figure out how to get the block off the board as he couldn’t lift it as easily or freely as he normally would. He kept trying and eventually, with two hands, he got it off.
It only took a couple of mins to put together. You could do similar on a large piece of card board or maybe even on a patio door so that the sticky surface is vertical.
Give it a go. Would love to know how you get on with it.
