This tub was created on a whim to buy myself a bit of time one morning. I opened up the kitchen cabinets and perused the shelves. So simple: oats, egg noodles, a tablespoon, chop sticks and a measuring cup.Â My son added a few other items like the dump truck, lily pad and animal figurine.
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 in your daily routine.
In this exercise we explored food, fine motor skills, measuring/math and textures. How simple was that learning?
