April Sensory Box

I can feel and see spring and it's a relief after a long, snowy winter.  To celebrate spring we need a new sensory box with a spring feeling. 

  • Pink and green rocks found on clearance
  • Eggs
  • Chenille chicks
  • Pom-poms
  • Spoons
  • Spring Box

When I introduce the sensory box I let them explore without interruptions for about 10 minutes.  They usually start a conversation about what is inside the box.  If they tell me something feels "good", I ask for a more descriptive word.  I will say, "What does good mean?"  Sometimes they can come up with an appropriate word, but if they are stuck, I will guide them or give them a new word.
