9 Simple Sensory Box Idea's

Sensory boxes/tubs/bins as you may see or hear them called are absolutely FANTASTIC! 
They provide hands on learning that is both visually and texturally attractive.
Exploring the array of content provided in the boxes children and adults not only receive the sensory stimulation, but they are learning about cause and effect, developing their fine motor skills, engaging their imagination and creativity. There are opportunities for problem solving, decision making and can boost confidence and self esteem along with many other skills.

They are a great addition to topic work and also tailoring them to suit the interests and age stages of the children in your care.

A black water bead base with insects, reptiles, containers, utensils - perfect for Halloween.

This one is my personal favourite! Filled with green rice there are lots of pretty, sparkly, textured items to explore!

Vibrant yellow coloured rice with little chicks, eggs, a bird house, a fuzzy textured bunny and felt basket, we really enjoyed this one!

4) Custard

Custard provides such an interesting texture! Very messy but great fun!

So simple, yet so much fun. Lots of opportunity to fill and empty containers!

Perfect for younger children who may be tempted to still put things in their mouths, providing of course they don't have allergies this gives a great opportunity to fill and empty containers whilst having a cheeky nibble too!

Very simple - gather together a variety of bowls, utensils and let your little one explore. We added some eggs to this basket too!

A simple yellow rice base filled with a farm set from ELC. 

Using the rice and utensils, watch on as your little ones imagination runs away with them.
