Christmas Sensory Box

We always have fun coming up with new idea's for a sensory table, and/or, box. Harmony adores her small toys and I love her using them so they don't end up in the vacuum or trash.

This Christmas Sensory Box helped us use our growing (way beyond expanding) box of lids and caps so we were super excited about that!!!  We made the Christmas shapes using cookie cutters, we decorated them with glitter, and then glued them onto the lids.  Harmony can use them for her Christmas "scene" and can actually pick them up and grasp them.  Nice, right?

I'll be posting a tutorial on how to make the snowflakes very soon.  :)  Have a great day and ..

Merry Christmas!

  1. I love this idea of a holiday sensory box. I never thought of this theme. You do it and it makes me wanaa say to myself, "Jill, why didn't you think of that?!!"

    As a preschool teacher (now SAHM) I think learning thru touch, and doing, and movement is A+ #1! I'm gonna pass this post along to my teacher friends :D

  2. Jill, for some reason I'm just now seeing your comment!

    I loved making the stuff to go inside the box.. but honestly, Harmony didn't play with it as much as I thought she would. I'm going to keep it out because it's geared toward a winter theme, as well. I might add more cotton balls and glitter! :o)

    Thanks for the comment!
