I wanted to create a dark sensory area for Ava as she really enjoys the sensory room they have at a local play centre. It seemed a shame that she only gets to experience it when we go there which isn’t that often. I had a search on Amazon and found some great products which have worked really well and not only that, they won’t break the bank.
Ava visits the tent multiple times each day and takes the sensory toys out of the tent to play with too. You could even re create the sensory experience without the tent in a dark room. I have put one of her cot mobiles in as it projects stars so if you have one that does that already then you won’t need to get one.
I use the toys for other themed sensory play activities which I will also be sharing.
Here are the products that I have used.
My two boys also like the tent and play in it with her or even on their own. My 4 year old particularly likes the doodle pen that comes with the tent. There is a pad inside the tent that you write on with the pen and it lights up with a green glow which he thinks it “so cool Mummy!” he uses it to practise his name. It also comes with stencils which have proved popular.
