Today we launched full force into Spring with a gardening sensory tub. Initially, I thought we’d be doing this tub indoors, but we lucked out with the weather today. We used a 28-quart storage container.
Spring Garden Sensory Tub
We collected rocks on the beach yesterday. Last night I painted them so my preschooler could hunt for the rock letters and spell S-P-R-I-N-G and E-A-R-T-H.
Spring critters galore with a few broken-down egg cartons for scooping and planting!
I picked up kids-sized gardening tools, including gloves, at Target.
We used black beans, potting soil, green lentils, and coffee grounds for a base.
My toddler added the rocks we collected yesterday, carefully placing them on the soil.
So pretty. Great sounds and colors.
These adorable carrots were great for scooping and fine motor skills. I picked it up from Target.
My son loved his gardening gloves.
Fine motor skill work.
I love this shot.
Spring critters included ants, beetles, ladybugs, bees, and crickets.
A fully worked sensory tub.
Our 14-month-old loved digging around the tub!
This final series of shots epitomizes the sensory tub experience for us!
