Slightly more sophisticated than my lentil and rice box, I present the Christmas sensory tub!! Equally as messy, seasonal, and adored by both my little elves. I must admit that even though the lentil and rice box idea was mine, I borrowed the idea of sensory tubs from Mari-Ann on her Counting Coconuts blog.
In the tub, I placed:
* jasmine rice, dyed green with food colouring
* plastic candy canes
* sparky pom-poms
* plastic containers for scooping
I had plans to wrap up matchboxes like little gifts, but ran a bit short of time. Next year, maybe.
