Valentine’s Sensory Tubs

February is already here.  I feel it was just New Year’s Day a week ago.  Time flies when you’re having fun.  We are enjoying our new home.  We recently did a complete kitchen renovation, and I’m loving it.  I’ve spent lots of time in it planning more fun activities for the kids.  I have my mind set on some sensory tubs!
Pom-poms, pipe cleaners, sparkly hearts, and plastic tub = fun sensory tubs for little ones!!!  We had a few Valentine’s goodies that I picked up at the dollar store and instead of coming up with a craft to use them for I decided to throw them in a tub and let the kiddos have at it. And they had a blast!  I love the Dollar Store for things like this.  It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to let my kids have fun.  And there are no rules as to what you put in these sensory tubs.
I simply put the materials in the tub and let them take it from there.  G grabbed the bowls and spoons from the play kitchen and the afternoon was gone!
I love activities like this that prove giving kiddos an invitation to play rather than creating a structured activity can be an engaging learning experience!
