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!
