Madison loves her new sensory boxes. I made a total of 4 and will be posting them over the next few weeks. This is good for texture play, hand/eye coordination and it's good for busy, alone play.
For this box I used oatmeal. I bought googly eyes, a few strands of beads and I included the Silly Bandz that I got from the Goodwill Bags O Fun I bought a couple weeks ago. I also put in a small strainer for her to scoop and pour.
This is the reason I want edible material.
I keep this box in the kitchen and it allows me to prepare supper while keeping an eye on her. She loves playing in the floor.
It also allows for easy clean up. I will have to replace the oatmeal often I'm sure, since she empties half of it every time she plays.
I bought all of these items(except the Silly Bandz) at Dollar Tree. Goodwill is a great place to get small items to put in them. Ours sells Bags O Fun which usually include a bunch of small plastic toys.
