Toddler Time - Simple Sensory Path


Need a quick toddler activity indoors to burn off some energy?  Set up this simple sensory path.  Gather objects from around your house.  We used some bath mats, the top of a ottoman, rug grippers and a baking cooling rack.  Off came the shoes and down the textured path the toddler went.  We practiced following simple motor commands - go and stop.  After repeating several times, the toddler decided to crawl along the path getting some wonderful sensory input to the hands as well. 


Super easy, super simple and fun idea to get your toddler moving and exploring the senses.

  1. This looks like so much fun. I love how you just used things you already had. I love sensory activities. I am going to try this with my toddler.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I love to use stuff from around the house especially since a toddler's attention span is so short.
