Mini Beast Sensory Tub

This activity kept children ranging from 1 to 4 years of age well entertained for a wet afternoon. I constructed a sensory tray in line with our current theme of mini-beasts. 

I used some rice and coloured it green then added some leaves, pebbles and some mini-beast toys. This was a great success and, as ever, prompted some really fun imaginative play. 

Initially the boys were fascinated with making the beasts sit on the pebbles and then tried to hide them using the leaves. For our one year old, simply exploring the texture of the rice was fun as well as picking out all the pebbles!

The addition of spoons and bowls led to the mini-beasts being fed their dinner as well as the boys deciding that the beasts were poorly and needed looking after.
