Sensory Perception Spheres are 5cm in diameter and are available in eight different clear colours . The semispheres are very sensory to the touch being smooth, soft and warm. Young children and those with additional needs will enjoy handling them in free sensory play or as part of a Treasure Basket collection.
Older children will find them fascinating as they hold them up and look through them seeing the world around them in different colours. The way light behaves when children look through the spheres will also help them to see the world from a different angle. Holding two or three Perception Spheres together creates new colours and hues; using the Spheres on a light panel will enhance the children’s opportunities for colour mixing.
