It has been a long time since we had our sensory table out, Lucas was so excited when I brought it out from storage. He has been playing in it almost non stop!
I went through the pantry to find some simple and engaging materials to fill our tub! I choose Rice, Lentils – mostly orange, but some yellow and green as well, and a bit of penne pasta. For his tools I gave him a large scoop, and a pie tin.
Lucas loves to pour the mix into the tin to hear the wonderful noise it makes… he tells me its raining :)
The tin is also great for making birthday cakes!!
This sensory item requires lots of sweeping, so Lucas has been learning to sweep as well!
