Dian's Sensory Board

I decided to make my brother Dian a sensory board after seeing pictures of them on Pinterest. This board is very easy to make. I gathered a number of different materials and fabrics. It is important to gather as many different types of materials as you can - soft, hard, shiny, bumpy, smooth etc. You can use old clothes and even use old doll clothes if you have them. It can be hard for them to interpret and respond to sensory information so something like this can help them get use to the different type of fabrics. I also added a Lindt bell, shredded green paper and small pegs. These will help to make them move their fingers and built strength in their hands. 

I hope this tutorial has been helpful and easy to understand.
