Sensory in a box and out in the garden

I'm starting small and thinking ahead to the winter days when sensory experiences must be found in the classroom: a box of smells available from Dale Air. You can read about how one teacher used these in SMD Teacher Blog.

A similar type of product that sometimes turns up at charity shops and car boot is Les Lotto des odeurs
Its a smelling game you can find it new at WINSLOW and is called Follow your Nose (thanks to Becca for this information)

Thinking big and looking out into the glorious sunshine:A sensory garden.
Resike has a wonderful animated breakdown of their Sensory garden which they sell.The animated plan has photos and plant names with sections for touch, taste, smell, sound and sight. I have also written about sensory gardens in my blog entry Gardening

Hello, Resike here. You may notice that the link to the Sensory Wheel above takes you to a blank page on our website. You can find more information about the wheel here:

To see the animated wheel as discussed above, you can also find that here:
