Sensory Tray Tool Kit
Ignite your little one’s imagination with our sensory tool kit. Sensory play engages a child's sense of touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. The benefits of sensory play are immeasurable- the formation of neural connections in the brain, creativity, language development, problem solving skills, cognitive function, fine and gross motor skills, scientific thinking and more!
Our kit contains 9 Beech Wood tools perfect for little hands to grip. It also comes with a cotton bag for easy storage.
Pair with our Sensory Tray and provide ample opportunities for open ended play.

Before first use, we recommend oiling the sensory tools with food grade oil such as olive oil or coconut oil. This will increase the longevity of the tools.
Our Teacher Tips
Introduce literacy using a story book to evoke vocabulary. For example, using “The Three Little Pigs”, model a retell incorporating the use of the sensory tool kit. Verbalise as you manipulate the objects. “ Hammer the Pigs bricks” “Scoop the mud” “Tip/pour the sand into the tray compartment“.
Does playdough stick to the tools?
When raw the wood can be quite porous. We recommend oiling the sensory tools with a food
grade oil, such as olive oil or coconut oil, before first use. This will make it easier to remove playdough after use and increase the longevity of the tools. It will also create a water resistant barrier.
Are the wooden tools water proof?
We recommend oiling the sensory tools with a food grade oil, such as olive oil or coconut oil, before first use this will create a water resistant barrier, however they are not water proof, therefore dry each tool thoroughly after use with water or wet play. Please be aware that using the tools for water based
play may, over time, give your tools a ‘weathered’ look. We highly recommend reapplying oil when the wood appears to dry out.
How do I wash the tools after Sensory Play?
A quick rinse and thorough dry, followed by a re-oil is the best way to preserve your tools and keep them looking and feeling new. We recommend removing the bulk of the sensory play material from the tools before allowing to harden or dry to
Do the tools give splinters?
Our tools are hand sanded to give a smooth and safe finish. Oiling the tools regularly will increase the lifespan and keep them smooth for little hands to
Do the tools come with a storage bag?
They do! So once thoroughly cleaned and dried they can be stored either inside your Sensory Tray or in their own cotton carry bag.
What is the best age group for the tools?
This is up to each child and their interest and motor skills. Most two year old’s and above will benefit and enjoy these tools. Some children may be ready sooner, some may need a little more time. Please be sure to consider:
1. The gross and fine motor ability of your child.
2. Your childs age- Is my child old enough to sit and not fall forwards or backwards onto the tools? (some have sharper points including the zester and soft edge knife) and; Is my child going to mouth or bite the tools? If so, they are not yet ready for these.
