Sensory Circle Set, great sensory resource.
The set comprises of 10 textured circular disks made from ultra-soft flexible silicone – 5 large (250mm) and 5 small (80mm).
The surface of each circle has a different and distinctive pattern that children will find tactile and engaging. A feely bag is supplied so that the small circles can be placed inside and your child can guess the pattern or describe the texture by touch. The large circles can be placed on the floor so your child can walk on them and use their feet to experience the different tactile surfaces. The silicone circles will grip to a flat floor surface (even if it is shiny) making them non-slip and safe for your child to walk on.
Silicone is a great material for the sensory circles because it is strong, safe to handle and soft to the touch. The circles can be washed by hand or popped in a dishwasher on a high temperature setting to clean them thoroughly

"We loved these. The children used the circles to create snail shell designs, simply and quickly. They were very easy to wash off with warm soapy water at the end of the creative activity and dried overnight, ready to use the following morning with our light box. The bag provided for the smaller circles was a nice touch. Appealed to children, especially walking on them with bare feet! Totally non-slip which we loved! Promoted language use to describe them. Also good as feely bag game."
Children can feel the textures and discover their differences: by placing the small circles into the feely 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 a blindfold.
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.
