Easter/ Spring Sensory Tub

This weekend I put together my first ever sensory tub for K.  I am 100% positive that he will throw the objects around & try to eat them so I wanted to use something that isn't going to make a big clean up. Since we have had a mouse (mice??!) in the house recently I didn't want anything that could be "food" laying around either. I settled for Easter/ Spring objects that would make an easy clean up until we have learned the rules of playing in a sensory box. This is what I came up with:

Easter/ Spring Sensory Box

What you need:
-A clear plastic container approx. 15 L
-A bag of easter grass
 (I wanted green but couldn't find any so had to settle for purple)
-12 plastic easter eggs of different sizes
-A small stuffed bunny
(I bought a bunny keychain & cut the chain bit off)
-A dozen small chicks
(You can make your own using yellow pom poms if you can't find any)
-A bag of feathers
-A bunch of fake flowers
(Stems cut off)

All of these objects were bought at a dollar shop & cost me about $20 including the container although I'm sure you could get everything for half the cost back in Canada or America.

What to do:
-Put all of the grass into your container
-Fill the eggs with the chicks & add to the container
-Add flowers, feathers & bunny.

I let my toddler dig in the tub & feel the different textures. He loves searching through the grass & "smelling" the flowers. He also loves finding all of the eggs & seeing what is inside. We practice sorting the different objects & taking apart/ putting the eggs back together. We both love this new activity & I am looking forward to making many more sensory boxes in the months to come.

Have you made a sensory box for Easter or Spring lately? I'd love to see it. Just leave a comment linking up & I may feature it in an upcoming blog post!
