For February, we’re “learning” about Valentine’s Day, about heart shapes and the colors red, pink and white.
Here’s our Valentine’s Day sensory box:
This box contains red and pink jingle bells; red, pink, and white pom-poms; red feathers; red and pink heart-shaped Mardi Gras beads; Valentine’s Day erasers; small pink jewelry boxes; heart-shaped cookie cutters; and white, heart-pattered plastic cups.
Everything came from the dollar store (thanks, in part, to my mother-in-law) or my arts and crafts stash.
I think this might be the girls’ favorite box yet. They love wearing the beads and transferring the beans from the big box to the small boxes and cups, or putting the jingle bells in the cups and shaking them around. They also love stacking the cups and nesting them inside each other.
