Outer Space Rug in detail

Outer Space is full of sensory and educational fun!

This path is designed to work for a wide range of neurodiverse abilities. Teaching children to jump can be a challenge – telling them to pretend to be a rocket and blast off changes the learning curve in your favor. The asteroid stream of letters can be used on many levels – alphabet recognition to spelling site words.  All the while, knowing that great sensory work is also being done. See below for a description of each activity. Our goal is to make the activities a fun, positive experience. When doing star jumps, children love to exclaim: “I’m a star!”. 


“The sensory path at our school has been helpful for many students that need some extra help with body control. The input they receive from the sensory path helps them to calm their bodies and helps them get back into a zone that they can learn.” 
– Jaime H., Cinti., OH
