With an upcoming birthday for Troy-boy, I decided to create a birthday sensory tub for the boys. What a exciting way to prepare for a birthday, right?!
Here’s what’s included:
*colored rice (see this blog for a tutorial)
*birthday blowers (is that what they are called??!)
*smarties (just for fun…
their our favorite candy!)
*letter T and number 3
*3 fun candles
As you can tell by Wesley’s face, he loved those birthday blowers. He belly laughed so hard! You can also see that it’s a bit messy! It might be from my 14 month old boy who has learned how to throw things and thought it was funny to throw the rice.
The funnel was fun for them to use to fill up the jar. Plus, it’s great for fine motor skills. How did those fall pumpkins get in there?? Oh well. 🙂 Troy’s favorite thing to do with sensory tubs is to bury items and then try to find them or have me find them. Keeps him occupied for a while.
I absolutely LOVE sensory tubs. It’s fun to switch it up every few weeks. Check out my sensory play page for more ideas!
