Montessori Beginnings- Sensory tub

So I did it I just started. I grabbed the colored rice we made the other day and mixed in some other stuff I found around, pom poms, cups, and those long medicine spoon things ( sorry don't know what it is called).

First I used a plastic table cloth, it was a thin one. It did not work well when they spilled it. Difficult to clean off. I then moved a rug that we just have to play and it worked well. I will be looking for an activity rug. This kind worked since all the kids wanted to play. I could not believe it no one tried to eat it. Amazing!

When the rice went out of the bin. I told the child who spilled it that they needed to stop and clean it up. T thought this was the end of the world cried and cried. She would try to play again and I would stop her and have pick up if a large amount fell out. F did a great job stopping to clean. She really liked the bin.

  1. Yay!!! So fun and what a great sensory tub! Looks like fun was had by all. And if you stick with it and stay consistent, the cleaning up without a fight will follow, just takes them some time! Great job!!!
