After checking out Pinterest for some great ideas, I had a lot of fun making this Halloween sensory box.
I think part of the joy of making these boxes is collecting and also we get to have first play!
Rose was the first to delve in.
As before, we try to keep the contents on the mat. Some of the split peas and lentils did roll off the mat but most were easy to clean up by carefully grabbing the ends and pouring back into the box.
Rose loves boxes...empty!
She particularly enjoys the beans and lentils; scooping, pouring, lifting. The little plastic spoons were a hit as she is enjoying using them at meal times.
Daisy went straight for the finger puppets. She pointed out that the mummy and rather scary looking skeleton were the same colour and then started role playing.
The rubber bands were fun and we enjoyed working out what they were. Boo!
I gave Daisy the option to use this math sorter. She bagan, but grew impatient as Rose scooped lentils into and messed up her sorting.
Yes...I did have fun organising it for a photo!
