Christmas Sensory Box

Sensory Play is my favourite play, especially providing it for children of the early years. I love sensory boxes as it captures an array of sensory items and you can link it to themes and interests as a way to encourage curiosity and teach children more about the chosen topic.

We have been loving out Christmas Sensory Box! Its given Little N a perfect opportunity to explore the different things she can see around our home, up close and personal.

You will need:
Large under bed storage container
A filler - I used rice but if you want more ideas click here
Coloured dye (if you want to colour your filler)
Candy Canes
Wrapping Bows
Small Christmas Tree

Tinsel provides an interesting tickling, fluffy texture that glistens as the lights catch it, and the smell is always a reminder of Christmas!

Interestingly the bright, shiny red Christmas tree has been used as a container to fill up with rice and to pour it all back out again!

The rice which I had coloured green made a delightful pinging noise as it was sprinkled onto the Christmas baubles.

The white, glittered snowflakes were used to scoop up the rice.

I even got stuck in and enjoyed the sensation of scooping up the cool rice in my hands. Little N's cousin was round to play and collected the rice out of my hands and sprinkled it back into the Christmas Sensory Box.
