For this Earth Day themed sensory tub, I decided to focus on the colors of the earth – brown (land), blue (water), green (plants), yellow (sun) and white (clouds).
I started with a base of globe bouncy balls and real pine cones (borrowed from our nature basket).
Then I added a few items like egg carton scraps from a recent egg carton challenge, green and yellow porcupine balls, pom poms, cotton balls, and tree figurines.
We discussed the various items and what each represented in the tub:
- White pom poms and cotton balls > Clouds
- Blue pom poms > Water
- Green pom poms and porcupine balls > Plants
- Yellow porcupine balls > Sun
- Egg carton scraps > Reusing and recycling
Great books to supplement this activity include:
