Valentine’s Day sensory box

11 Feb

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:

20150211_152257This 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.

20150208_10392120150208_103957I 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.

20150208_104238They’re doing a much better job of keeping the beans contained to a confined space, rather than throwing them about…although they do still do that, too.

    They look like they are really thinking so hard.

      They get very intense and concentrate very hard on things they really are interested in.
