Sensory Bags will outlast several toys
Tired of spending a fortune on toys that just don’t last? Not only can our sensory mini bean bags be used from birth to adulthood, they have been designed with Maria Montessori and Steiner’s theories of learning in mind-so they are ideal educational tools.
All seams come with our quality double stitching, made from only the best quality fabrics. Measuring approximately 10cm square the 6 mini bags are a great size for small hands and can be popped in a handbag to be played with in the car or at an appointment. The sensory bags are also washable as we know just how grubby much loved toys can get!
Sensory bags for learning
Starting from birth newborns are drawn to black and white images as they can only see the contrasting colours. Line them up against a wall near where they are lying or lay them in front of them to make ‘tummy time’ that little bit more interesting. At 3 months when their visual skills have developed further flip the sensory bags over to introduce your child to the colours of the rainbow.
As your child grows stack the sensory bags, sort them according to the texture of the fabrics (smooth, silky, fluffy), count them, discuss primary and secondary colours, learn the shapes on the contrasting black and white sides, catch and throw them or use them for games like hopscotch. The ideas are endless!
Not only do these versatile bean bags build skills required for everyday life such as vocabulary, concentration, team building, hand and eye coordination, analysing, descriptive, gross and fine motor skills they are a truck load of fun.
Sensory beanbags for special needs
Sensory bags are great for children with special needs. The weight of the bag been known to calm some children when placed on the back of their hands or as they fiddle with it in their fingers. A wonderful toy for kids with a visual impairment.
