This tub was created on a whim to buy me a bit of time one morning. I opened up the kitchen cabinets and perused the shelves. So simple: oats, egg noodles, a tablespoon, chopsticks, and a measuring cup. My son added a few other sensory bin fillers like the dump truck, lily pad, and animal figurine.
Oats and Pasta Sensory Tub
My point with this post is not so much to suggest that you recreate this tub, although oats and egg noodles make for good sensory fun, but instead to remind you that these exercises can be easily and simply integrated into your daily routine.
In this exercise, we explored food, fine motor skills, measuring/math, and textures. How simple was that learning?
