Sensory steps - part 1
On Pinterest last week, I came accross the idea of making sensory steps. I just could not resist the idea of making some myself for Little N. and Baby T. (when he starts crawling). I have 12 planned, four are completely done. The red ones. I have put quite a bit of work into making them as I would like them to last a while but also to look pleasant. Let's see how it goes after some days of playing with them :)
Step one: Cut your cardboard to the required size
Step two: Tape it to prevent your child from cutting himself (or in our case to protect myself! from injury)
Step three: Paint it (I did four red, four green and four yellow)
Step four: Glue the anti-slide (which Little N. tried to tear off yesterday!)
Step five: Glue whatever you want on top (for the red ones I did: a large block of foam, decorative pebble stones, bottle caps and cut sponges)
Little N. does have small issues with stepping bare-feet on the ground, especially if there are sand, stones, grass or anything uneven. Those sensory steps could very well help her getting better in that respect.
