I’ll share some sensory path ideas that you can do yourself and also some that you can purchase. As a mom of a beautiful autistic kinder, she inspires me every day for new paths for all kids to enjoy!
Sensory paths are great for various reasons but mostly to help kids learn while they are moving. Action-based learning is so important to all kids but even more for kids like my daughter who learn best in the most unconventional ways!
Sensory Path Ideas and Examples
I love how versatile a sensory path can be. The sky is the limit really. You can create your own with chalk, with some sensory boards, or even by printing our free sensory path download. Let me share a few of my favorites.
DIY Sensory Paths
In this section, I’ll be sharing some sensory path ideas that you can do yourself. You might need a printer and some supplies for some of the ideas, like chalk or other items.
DIY Chalk Sensory Path
I love this video by Kid Power Therapy Services. They really show how great a chalk sensory path can be! (and so easy & affordable!)
Here is another example. Very colorful and bright, not all sensory paths need to be the same!
And then you have one like this, where it’s like WOW. This artist really went above & beyond to create an amazing sidewalk chalk sensory path. How beautiful is this!
DIY Sensory Path
Here are some sensory path ideas that you can make yourself, with either some printables or some items you may have at home.
The first idea I’ll share is one you may have seen on social media. This path was made with various cutting boards and materials. It’s a pretty neat idea and it creates a highly sensory experience for the kids.
The next idea is our very own free sensory path that you can download and print or use with your vinyl machine at home.
Another interesting idea made with foam tiles. They simply glued some sensory materials to the foam tiles and created a sensory path for the kids!
You can also create a sensory path with painter’s tape (or any type of tape to be honest!). Here’s one example with painter’s tape.
And here’s another sensory path idea you can create with colored electrical tape! We did this one in our hallway when my daughter was only 3.
You can also use electrical tape to create a sensory path hopscotch like this one on a yoga mat!
Sensory Paths Decals
Sensory path decals are basically floor decal stickers that can be applied almost anywhere. They are more durable, have an anti-slip surface, and are also odorless.
