The theme of the collage is sensory and he has to basically show the 5 senses in a picture.

sight and sound touch and smell and taste.

is that the 5 senses? lol.

Anyone got any ideas what he could do?


Orange peel, tin foil, piece of cloth, a leaf, crepe paper, all stuck on a bit of carboard.

I'm assuming it has to be a picture rather than just random stuff?

So for the picture, something that has a pond or the sea in it so you could use a mirror for sight?
Then sandpaper for touch(painted green or left sand colourd)?
smell, taste and sound I'll leave to others for inspiration lol

Seems I interpreted the question wrong - thought it had to have elements of all senses - if that makes sense :?

Anyhoo - we all know the parents mostly make these projects :thumbsup:

At our offices we have these giant sensory " sculptures" for children. There's balls of different weights that go down through clear piping and lights and sounds go off when they thread the balls through successfully. The sculptures are made of bubbly and scratchy and cold materials... all different kinds so they're intriguing to the touch.. sounds go off when they interact with the sculpture and lights flash.

The amount of times i've seen adult visitors playing with the sculptures..........lol

as for a sensory collage, I'd go out in the garden and collect together bits of anything you can find... tree bark, seeds, flower petals, soil, sand... glue it all to summin fun like sandpaper and add on a touch of glitter or so just to make it eye catching... call it "Autumn"................. job sorted x

Fits in with current foundation stage requirements that all children's activities should be "R.I.C.H.".... ie real, interactive, challenging, holistic.
