St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Tubs

This post may contain affiliate links.  Please read our disclosure here.

Little Miss K LOVES her sensory tubs and they are super easy to throw together.  I recently went to our local dollar store and picked up a variety of St. Patrick’s themed goodies.  I simply threw them in a bucket and let Kynlee play.  There are so many fun things at the Dollar Store to make tons of sensory tubs.  I didn’t spend a fortune.  It was a Win-Win for both of us!
For this tub, I pulled the green and yellow pipe cleaners from the package and twisted them into fun shapes.  I also found these really cool foam clovers that led to all sorts of fun activities.  She was mesmerized by the glitter ones.  They were definitely her favorite.
I also found some fun St. Patrick’s Day themed necklaces to add to our sensory tubs.  Kynlee went straight for those as well and wore them all over the house!

No plan, no activity…just an invitation of play.  Kynlee immediately began pulling the shamrocks from them tub and laying them out.  I built on her play by lining the shamrocks in patterns just for some fun.

Grayson joined in soon after and we played together…Kynlee explored the different materials and textures while he extended the patterns we made.  Another successful sensory tub for the kiddos!
