Our Sensory Kids


What's in the box?

This is an adult led game we play in which our sensory children practise keeping their focus and attention on the lead speaker, being part of a group and reacting to cause and effect.

H O W  T O  P L A Y

The adults sing “what’s in the box, what’s in the box, let’s see, let’s see, what’s in the box.” As the lead adult wiggles and shakes the box in an attempt to gain attention.

The lead adult opens the box slightly and gets out the first item. “Ooo, wow, a _____” The adult proceeds to complete an exciting cause and effect activity. For example; clapping shaving foam, sprinkling glitter, rolling a ball….etc

After a short time the item goes back in the box ready to start the song again for another item to come out of the box.
