Beans in a Tub: Sensory Awareness


Beans in a Tub: Sensory Awareness




This week I made a sensory awareness tub for Calvin.  I put several bags of dried beans and
 a bag of dry rice into a plastic tub. Then I added a few scoop toys and a bucket.  I purchased everything at my local dollar store.




Procedure:



  • Calvin had so much fun filling his little bucket with beans.  Sometimes he used his hands.  Sometimes he used a scoop toy.  Either way he was developing his small muscle coordination and increasing his sense of touch.

















Extend the Activity:

  • You could make homemade bean bags.

  • You could make a bean bag collage.

Do you have a comment or a suggestion? I'd love to hear from you.
