I decided to make one large enough to to have several textures and areas to to enable them to reach, but not cumbersome. I also wanted to give them the best chance of seeing the contrast between the background and the textures. I found a sheet of card that had been in a large ikea picture frame and cut it in two. I covered the board with cloth tape. To get the visual contrast I made one black and white, and the other white to use with neon and a uv light.
Textures - I found buttons, feathers, sticky carpet tiles that had corded ridges, felt, ribbon, Pom poms, a stretchy cord and a sponge. This all came from home or from pound shops. The pound shops also had neon fishnet tights, and fluffy neon cleaning mitts.
I intend to place it on a table for one child to use when he is standing, and the other to have when lying over a wedge.
