Sensory Fun ~ Packing Peanuts and Pom Poms

IMG_7169

I thought it would be fun to make a winter sensory tub and I have been saving some biodegradable packing peanuts for a while now just for this activity!  So I filled our sensory tub with packing peanuts.  Then I added some white and blue pom poms, cotton balls, silver and blue sequins and spangles and white, silver and blue pipe cleaners.  This added some fun colors and textures for the girls to explore!

I also added some blue training chopsticks for the girls to pick the pieces up with.  Then small, medium and large clear plastic containers and our snowflake silicone baking cups for them to fill up. 

Juliette loved putting the packing peanuts in the silicone baking cups.

Winter Sensory Bin 2 Emily used the training chopsticks to transfer the pieces into the containers.
