Beach Play Sensory Box


Today I made Ethan his first Sensory Box!  I made it a beach theme, with oats as a base (I wanted something edible, just in case Ethan puts it in his mouth, but not too tempting that he'll eat it all!)  and put in some sand toys.

What you'll need:

  • porridge oats
  • large box or bin (one with shallow sides is best)
  • sand toys

Ethan had so much fun scooping up the oats and throwing them all around.  He felt them through his fingers, getting familiar with the rough texture of them.  Of course had a little taste and poured them out of the buckets and shovels. Such a lovely sensory activity for his Knowledge and Understanding of the World as he explored the oats in a very unique way.
