Building sensory and activity cubes for babies

Today we sit to have fun as well as to learn something from our event. The toy we prepare for our children will affect their sense of development and is very important for their finger and hand muscles.

Diy sensory blocks – a wonderful sensory toy for your little one

Today I’m going to prepare sensory cubes for my little girl. If we place different materials as we can in sensory cubes, we allow our children to understand them by touching different tissue materials and at the same time support the muscles of the fingers.

At a young age, we can prepare toys for our children with different tissues and increase their distinctive character. At the same time, we touch different tissues to make them feel the characteristics that distinguish these substances from each other. Thanks to these tissues, we contribute to the development of emotions and we have had fun.

  • Let’s have a look at the construction of our cubes;

  • Materials:

    • Cardboard

    • Silicone

    • Silicone gun

    • In your home you can find objects (ponpon, pearl, sponge inside and outside, dishwasher, cotton, eva, number sticks, artificial grass, stones, wicker rope, googly eyes, felt, scales, buttons, ribbons, magnetic figures, pipette, chenille etc.)

  • How to make;

  • We draw a pattern on the cardboard for the first cube we will create and cut it with scissors.

  • We cut these patterns from stripes and curl them.

  • Then we create the cubes by gluing the sections we fold together.

  • Since our cubes are ready, it’s time to cover each side of them with materials in different textures.

Tissue senses are important for children as well as young children. In later ages, we allow our children to touch different tissues to understand the properties that will distinguish the substances more quickly. Besides the earrings we make today, we can do fun activities for our children who are at the age of primary school or kindergarten. For example, we may want our children to put the materials in the boxes with different taste and texture in front of them and guess these substances by touching them and smelling them with their eyes closed. You can rest assured that this game will be more effective than a dry presentation. Because children learn very well in the most beautiful living, tasting, smelling, touching, and so on. Everything you enjoy and learn is more permanent. Have fun. 😊
