Sensory Clown

Materials Needed

  • Cardboard Box

  • Glue

  • Marker 

  • Clown Outline (optional)

  • Sensory "fillers" - paint, glue, baking soda, pom poms, tissue paper, foam etc.

Let's Create!

  • To begin, grab an old cardboard box and carefully cut off one flat part of it. About the size of a shoe box is perfect. (In fact if you have an actual shoe box - the lid works great)!


  • This next step really depends on how comfortable you are with drawing an image of a clown on your own. If you are able to do it, go for it! If not - there are many adorable clown outline images online, print one off and glue it right onto your cardboard!

  • Fill out your clown image with various sensory objects - really whatever (safe) items you have laying around work great! Some ideas for different "feels" are:

    • Pom Poms

    • Stuffing of an old toy (dog or human)

    • Squeaker for the nose (again old dog toy works great)

    • Colorful glue (easy to make with food coloring and glue)

    • Baking soda (glue down - there will be residue though)

    • Foam

  • Let the clown dry and have your little one explore! ​

  • Make sure you watch you child carefully with the sensory clown as children have a tendency to really enjoy pulling pieces off which can be a choke hazard.
