Sensory box for babies and toddlers

Collect different textures and create a sensory box for your mini Nature Detective.

Babies and toddlers are fascinated by textures and smells. What will you add to your box?

  • Make a memento of your woodland journey
  • Add items that your little one makes a beeline for – leaves, feathers and sticks are great!
  • Remember to choose lots of textures; silky, rough and tickly – what’s your favourite?

Try creating a different sensory box for each season.
