It’s Day 9 of 30 days to Hands on Play and we are having so much fun completely the challenges daily. So onto today….

Today’s Challenge: Sensory Tub!

Now although we play regularly Sensory Tubs are not something that we have ever done. Yes we played with cloud dough but I have never put together a sensory tub. So this was a new experience for me. I decided that as we are still reading our bear books that I would put together a sensory tub based on Goldilocks and the 3 bears we used different textures, as well as different sizes of containers and J and I sat on the floor and played with it. T came over and investigated but wasn’t really sure about it.

We did have a lot of fun and I think it’s something that I need to do more regularly maybe have a bin set up once a fortnight or month for use during the week.

More ideas for sensory tubs and play can be found in our Activities for Babies Ideas!
