A network to share best practices for children with special needs
Meredith~ I will have to try making some moon sand! It seems like great fun! Thanks for posting.
Look for the recipe online. I don't remember what the ratio is. :)
A very trustworthy source (with a wonderful blog) for moon sand: http://fairydustteaching.blogspot.com/2011/05/make-your-own-moon-sa...
Also, pool noodles can be cut up and put into a sensory table, with large lacing string or large oversized pipe cleaners, or the cut up pool noodles can be placed in a small plastic baby swimming pool for a fun, sensory experience.
WOW! What a wonderful idea. I can't wait to put some of these items in my sensory tubs. I teach Special Day Class/moderate-severe with specialized academic instruction. I am always looking for items that are cheap, easy to make and can be done without having to place an order then waiting for them to arrive.
Instasnow is another fun tactile experience as well! Also slime!
Love these ideas. I also read Martianne's play dough blog and got lots of new ideas there as well. I look forward to using them in my special ed classroom next year, and with my sweet baby if she EVER decides to use her hands!
What is Instanow?
