sensory story time

common objects and a story book, plus blindfolds

When it is story time get out a story book and a collection of the common objects mentioned in the story, have everything prepared and then being your child into the room blindfolded. Explain to your child that you are going to read a story but he has to imagine the story as he can’t see the pictures as he is blindfolded. Then begin reading the story and when an object is mentioned pass him that object to feel. Or blindfold your child and sit him down while you read him a story, if he asks about an object, or how big something is, you have to find that object or a similar one. This can be played in groups as long as there are enough blindfolds. Have the children sitting in a circle blindfolded with hands under a thick blanket. Maybe have another adult makes the sound effects.
