Well, brace yourselves for a mess but this sensory experience will surely delight your child! My general concept was a deconstructed turkey dinner. I added some fun bits like the boat and mini football. My favorite part was the texture of the instant potatoes.
November Sensory Tub
What we added to our bin:
- 3 boxes of uncooked instant potatoes
- Finger puppets of pilgrim turkeys (EBay)
- Corn kernals
- Kidney beans
- Dried cranberries
- Fake wish bones
- Dried bread bits
- Mini footballs
- Mini boat
- Measuring cup
My son ended his experience by climbing into the tub and pretending to fall asleep. I explained that that is what people usually do after a big turkey dinner.
Then he helped me sweep and vacuum up the mess. So, you see, we had a sensory and practical life experience. No bad for a morning's work!
As I mentioned, this one was messy so I suggest either doing it outdoors, placing a tarp under the bin, or placing the bin in a larger container (erh…like a plastic kids pool!).
It was a lot of fun so just prepare yourself for the messiness and enjoy watching the sensory madness!
