The Great Toast Experiment

Each set of Sensory Stones includes a fantastic leaflet full of activities written by play specialist Wendy Usher. The ‘mark making with toast’ idea caught our attention – see step-by-step details of the activity below along with our results!

Experiment in a similar way by imprinting the stone designs onto soft dough such as that used in biscuits/cookies prior to baking. The imprint will be seen once the food is cooked. This activity expands the sensory experience into different dimensions including the smell of cooking and the taste of cookies and toast!
