DIY Mini Sensory Board

 

Make a mini sensory board for your little ones using extra materials! This simple assemblage can be a fun craft to make with your kids, or a great way to use up those scraps as well as keep those little hands busy. Our Reuse Specialist, Blessing, walks you through the steps below.

Materials 

  • 1 8”x10” or larger picture frame (w/ removable back)
  • 1 sheet of felt (optional)
  • Glue gun & glue sticks
  • A variety of materials with interesting textures (make sure they’re kid-safe, if making for a small child)

Instructions:

  1. Remove the glass/plastic front of the frame. 
  2. Hot glue the felt sheet to the inner backing of the frame and cut off excess.

3.  Arrange your textured materials on the board; cut to desired shape and size if applicable. If using yarn, cut a strand, tie a knot in the middle, and glue all the knots together on one spot of the board for a fun fur patch.

4.  Hot glue materials into place. Make sure they’re securely glued onto the board. 

5.  Fit the board back into the frame and enjoy!
