HANDMADE SENSORY MARBLE MAZE Maze E
E-12 This is for one marble sensory maze. Side 1 is made with soft flannel fabric with turtles and polka dot print on the front. Side 2 is made with a rich green coordinating flannel fabric, for a soft sensory experience. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The size is approximately 7" x 7". As with all handmade items, each one will vary slightly. We triple-stitch the maze pattern into the fabric for extra strength for plenty of use. These mazes are suitable for children who might be on the autism spectrum, have attention deficit disorder, or other sensory processing disorders. It can help keep their hands busy, allowing them to refocus on other tasks or self-regulate their responses. It is also helpful for passing the time when children need to be quiet, such as in church, waiting for the doctor, even a car trip. They are also wonderful for adults who are dealing with dementia or Alzheimer s Disease , who might need to have something in their hands at all times. Rather than sitting and wringing their hands, these soft mazes can give them something simple to do, pushing the glass marble (not seen but easily felt) through the stitched maze pattern. It feels better for them to have something in their hands as well, but there are no sharp edges which could harm them. This is also a simple way to improve manual dexterity for someone who might have had hand or wrist surgery and need to exercise their fingers. These are hand-held items made from various soft fabrics (always listed, since we use various types), triple-stitched with a glass marble in-between fabric layers. All flannels have been pre-washed and ironed to eliminate maze shrinkage. They can be spot-cleaned as needed, or machine washed, but we recommend laying them flat to dry (air dry), rather than tossing them in the dryer, due to the glass marble inside.
