Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Use a sewing machine
  • Know what a seam allowance is

Pattern Description:

The Montessori Sensorial Blindfold allows the child to isolate the non-visual senses. The blindfold can be used for the stereognostic sense with the mystery bag, touch boards, geometric solids, cylinder blocks, etc. It can also be used with the bells, sound cylinders, and smelling bottles for the auditory and olfactory senses.

The use of an elastic band allows the child independence and ease when putting it on and there are no worries about velcro not catching properly or not being tight enough. The casing for the elastic provides a softer touch to the child.

Perfect for Primary and lower Elementary, the finished blindfold measures apprx. 3" x 6" with an elastic band stretching from apprx. 14" to 28". It's perfect for the budget conscious whether you're making a couple for home use or many for school use. Cut & sew assembly style and you can quickly make a dozen in an afternoon.
