    I wanted to create sensory areas in my classroom. A section that has different types of smelly things, maybe hung from shoe laces, and then a touch area with different meterails for the children to feel and discuss. Has anybody done this before? if so how has it worked? ALso, i wondered if anyone has any ideas of different smells i could put in mt sensory bags? I have crushed lavender and a gingerbread smelling pot. I'm stuck for ideas!

    Slightly different as we have these as part of the investigation area CP - vanilla pods, cinnamon sticks, whole nutmeg and star anise so not in pots as children can investigate appearance and texture as well as scent
    touch - slices of loofah, natural sponge, pumice, pine cones, conkers,cork, tree bark, wood (in various forms- slices to show the rings, blocks, drift wood) beach pebbles and shells
