During my son's playgroup I discovered that he was fascinated with their sensory table which always has really cool stuff in it. Therefore, I decided to create my own sensory box. I call this rice and beans!
It was super easy to make! I had an extra long storage container under my bed that I was not using so I just filled it with some rice and beans. What's nice is that since it has a lid I can tuck it away, like under my bed, or just close it if I don't want him to getting into it.
Since my kitchen is on the larger side I had room to leave it in there also. However, I found that the living room worked well too because we have hard wood floors. All we have to do is sweep up the rice if any escapes out.
I hope it was helpful sharing this! I put "sensory box" items on Gabriel's Christmas list this year so hopefully there will be more posts with updates soon! Thanks for reading!
