This is a travel size version of the Sensory Tub we did a few weeks ago. We are going to Yellowstone National Park this week on vacation and I saw this idea on Famiglia&Seoul and thought it was nothing short of brilliant! When we are having some downtime and Isabella starts getting antsy, I can whip out this portable activity.
For this activity you will need
-Diaper wipe container
-Plastic sandwich bag
-Sensory tub base (I used the rice that I had kept)
-Little measuring tools for scooping, pouring
-Toys that you want to add
-Promotes learning through all 5 senses
-Builds fine motor skills by grabbing, scooping, pouring
-Teaches concepts such as cause and effect
-Teaches colors, shapes, size, and texture
Fill up a sandwich sized bag with your rice (or whatever else you want to use)
Then add your measuring and pouring tools
Add the toys
Viola! You have a quick and easy portable sensory activity!
What activities do you use when you are out and about or traveling?
