Hey all! Today I’m sharing our Easter sensory tub. It explores the sense of touch, sense of hearing, and even snack time!
I didn’t put a lot in this tub, but inside each egg there’s a little surprise! Before opening the eggs, I had Troy shake it and try to guess what was inside. I gave him a few clues. This is good practice for him to develop the ability to discriminate between sounds.
In some of the eggs, I put in Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies and Cookies. These are some of our favorite snacks, so of course the boys loved gobbling these up!
In three of the eggs, were crosses (made from pipe cleaners). Troy really hasn’t heard of a cross, so we had a wonderful discussion about what the cross means and the true meaning of Easter. He had many questions and still was confused, but it’s neat to see him learn what Easter is all about.
After opening the eggs, I had them put the items back in and practice listening to the sounds each egg made. Then Troy had an easier time guessing what was in them. Then we played with the Easter grass and felt eggs (from Michael’s Craft Store)!
It was simple, but a lot of fun!
