This month’s sensory tub is inspired by Christmas. I especially like the idea of baking cookies for Christmas, so you will see a strong cookie making theme running in this one too.
What I Used:
- Green Colored Rice – for the base. The goal was to have this look like pine needles. It turned out pretty good, but I let Samuel play with it before the coloring dried on the rice (bad idea – I hope I can get the color out of his pants.)
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Jingle bells
- Red pipe cleaners
- Cookie cutters – I put some with knobs so they would be easy for him to grab, and others are regular cookie cutters
- Silver Tinsel
Samuel LOVES this one. I think I will have to sweep up some rice after he plays every time, but as long as he isn’t intentionally throwing it out I don’t mind. It’s pretty easy to sweep up.
