What is a sensory path?
A sensory path is made of colorful and creative sensory floor decal stickers that are easily applied to flooring. The sensory floor decals are designed to attract and retain the attention of kids in order to help them develop gross motor skills like balance, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness.
Kids enjoy jumping, thumping, hoping, following paths and directions along the way, all while learning the alphabet, numbers, colors, and so much more. It is a great way to integrate movement activities with learning in a classroom or homeschool setting, and more. All kids can greatly benefit from a sensory path.

Questions & Answers:
Why I was inspired to create affordable sensory paths
My daughter was a late walker, with many sensory sensitivities. She had many delays which made us believe that Autism could be at play. In November 2019, we got our official diagnosis – my daughter who was only 2 was indeed on the spectrum. I poured my heart & soul into finding tools and activities that would support her, help her through her sensitivities and help her integrate better. We love her as she is, but I also know how early intervention is key. I want the best for her – don’t we all!
She had major delays with her gross motor skills. I wanted to find a way to help her with balance, jumping, squatting and more. I knew she loved numbers so I thought – I’ll get a some floor stickers for our basement room. To my surprise, they were SO expensive. I couldn’t believe it. So I decided that this would become my mission, for my daughter but also for all kids. To create affordable sensory floor decals for all families, schools, centres and more. My dream came true.
How can Sensory Paths help kids?
Our sensory pathways, like the Follow the Shapes Path (and many others in our shop), are designed with several exercises that help develop the motor skills. Our Rain Drop Hopscotch will help the kids with balance and coordination. Our Sensory Activity Spots will help them with movement, spatial awareness and more. Brain breaks are also very important for any child. Our sensory floor decals provide them an opportunity to get a movement break by jumping, skipping, thumping and even simply stretching! Let the kids expel some energy so they can focus more when class time comes around.
And since we are all about sensory play here at Fun Sensory Play, let me me explain how these sensory path we designed are actually part of sensory play. The definition of sensory play is basically any activities that is designed to stimulate and improve your child’s senses through play.
Now did you know that we have more than 5 senses? We have the sense of smell, touch, taste, hearing, and sight. But there’s also a few more like Equilibrioception (sense of balance), Kinaesthesia (sense of movement) and Proprioception (sense of space – spatial awareness).
Sensory play can be anything from playing with sand to finger painting, drawing and even reading! Sensory play is more than messy play. Eating is also a fun sensory experience!
As you can see, sensory play can take place anytime, anywhere and that’s why we love it so much! We also love that our sensory floor decals are designed to integrate learning with sensory play. Like with our Alphabet Dots Sensory Path, kids can learn the alphabet while jumping, hopping and more.
You can create alphabet identification activities such as a scavenger hunt by giving them an object to identify the first letter of the word. So many learning opportunities with them!
