Valentine’s Day Sensory and Motor Paths
Creating obstacle courses or motor/sensory paths are fun and pretty easy with the Valentine’s Day Sensory and Motor Path printables. I especially like how easy it is to change them up by switching up the printables or changing the arrangement. Check out one way of setting it up in the video below. I also love to add the handprints to the wall for more vertical surface work!
