A basket full of brushes can provide a sensory experience with its wide range of different textures.

Brushes which could be included:

  • toothbrush
  • hair brush
  • pastry brush
  • nail brush
  • different sized paintbrushes
  • make up brushes
  • shaving brush
  • shoe brush
  • washing up brush
  • floor brush

How can this benefit your child's development?

As well as the sensory benefits of playing with different brushes, they can also increase children's fine manipulative skills as they handle the different sized brushes. This basket also provides opportunities for imaginative play. Whilst talking with your child about how the brushes feel (hard, soft, tickly, scratchy) they will be learning new vocabulary and developing their language skills.
