This is a set of 10 textured circular disks made from ultra soft flexible silicone – 5 large and 5 small. On the surface of each circle is a textured pattern which is distinctive and different from the other 4 patterns. Children can feel these textures and discover their differences. By placing the small circles into the bag provided, they can see if they can describe or predict the pattern they are feeling or by using their feet they can walk over the large sensory circles to see if they can tell them apart. Linking the small and the large sensory circles via touch is great fun too, with or without their eyes being closed.
Silicone has some great properties which makes it the ideal material for sensory circles - it is strong, safe to handle and ultra-soft to the touch. On the floor, the circles will grip and not slip even on a shiny surface and after use they can be washed by hand or popped into a dishwasher set on a high temperature to clean them thoroughly without harm. An activity guide is in the set.
