I must admit as much as I love sensory play, our sensory play tub has been somewhat neglected lately as we have been stuck on rice for a good few months now. I decided it was time for a bit of renewal and dumped the rice in exchange for a bag each of dried peas and green lentils.
These started off in separate containers and Immy was having a great time spooning them across into a fresh bowl. I also provided an assortment of containers which became progressively smaller.
It was interesting to watch Immy’s concentration as she chose each new container with a smaller opening. This type of sensory play is great for toddlers. Immy has revisited the play table many times, sometimes taking her dolls to make them soup, and other times simply happy to fill and empty, pour and stir. You can see we are outdoors trying to capture some rays in the Winter sun, which makes for easy clean up once we are done, I simply sweep the pavement 🙂
Last week we had 40 inspiring We Play links, thank you everyone who is playing along. The post I chose as my favourite for the week had a whole host of play ideas, including a bright and colourful sensory play tub! You can find it here.
Now it is over to you, what have you been playing this week?
