Quick Craft Post: (Autumn) Sensory Box

| November 9, 2011 | 7 Comments

Just a quick post to share our Sensory Box with you… I have never ever made a sensory box before (not sure why), but have been joining in with the Play Challenge over at The Imagination Tree and Hands On As We Grow. There are so many different play ideas coming from both the blogs, that it is really worth a visit! Today’s challenge was a sensory box… with items from around the house. Read more about the benefits of a sensory box on The Imagination Tree.

What we have plenty of at the moment are conkers, pine cones and sticks.. so without even meaning to, we created an Autumn Sensory box:

Conkers (large and small), Pine Cones, Shells (?), Sticks and some colourful feathers. We added some random strawberries that I made ages ago (did I mention that we harvested some strawberries at the weekend? Crazy for November!). Spoons for scooping and pots for putting things in. A lovely journey of discovery – the conkers feel cold, the sticks warm. The feathers tickle one end and a pokey at the other. And Pip Squeak adored finding the conkers with the spoon, scooping them up and putting them in the little pot whilst pretending to count. Lovely.

If you like the idea of exploring the 4 seasons – check out Sun Hat & Wellie Boots’s blog for her wonderful 4 seasons discovery bottles. Fabulous!

    aahhh, I love it! I have just found you and this is the first blog I read from you … We have a little creche to look after babies/kids whilst their mums are doing some crafty stuff, so I am going to make sure that my nannies prepare a similar sensory box for next week courses. I had a little box with kitchen (not harmful) items, but this one looks great! Thanks for the tip ;-)
