Day 9 Challenge: Sensory tub play
CJ's school has lots of sensory tubs - Rice, Shaving cream, corn, Sand, Cooked pasta, dry pasta.... and her teacher says CJ loves sensory play the most. To avoid the repetition of play I generally skip the sensory play @home. But I got fascinated by the pink Fairy Sensory Tub on Imagination tree, My pink and princess obsessed girl will love it! Making pink rice in half day was impossible so we made a lentil princess sensory tub. I showed CJ few lentil boxes and asked her what type of lentil she wanted. She said "Mommy, lets make Garden, Sand and rocks". So we used Mung Dal, Brown Masoor Dal and polished Masoor Dal(Orange)
Lentils - Mung dal, Masoor dal(orange and brown)
Clear plastic container
Shallow cardboard box
Paper towel rolls
Disposable Cups, ziploc containers
We started filling a clear plastic container but it was little deep and that meant lot of lentils
So We shifted to a shallow cardboard box.
Princesses and friends!
Hair clips on the garden, Carriage on the rocks!
I added some fake flowers too!
Mommy! The flowers are in the garden! Silly you!
After we completed the sensory box, on CJ's request, we shifted the box into the clear plastic box. I thought that was a better idea, easy to store after play. All set for play! I gave her few measuring cups, disposable cups and straws. I noticed that she was having more fun scooping and pouring the lentils.
I made her a Paper roll castle so that she can pour lentils. The pink girl placed few pinks cups as castle!
CJ saw my castle tower and said "Mommy, your castle is not having a door. I want my princess to go in and out" so she made a paper roll castle with door
Falling Hair clips!
After playing for few hours, CJ asked for a ziploc container and said "Mommy, wait its a surprise for you!"
Surprise! Flower Garden!
