* Preschool At Home: Spring Sensory Box

Is it Spring yet where you live?

We keep getting little glimpses with a few nice weather days 
here and there but then we get yucky gray, 
cold, wet stuff and I find myself looking out the window
and daydreaming about where I can plant stuff 
when the ground warms up. 

We've got garden seedlings growing 
on the sunny playroom windowsill.
But we needed a little more Spring inspiration...

"C" announced that it was time to make a 
Spring/Easter sensory box last week
and I agreed so we raided our garage sensory box stash
and got to work. 

We used shredded paper for the bottom of the box. 
"C" wanted lots of eggs and little critters to hide inside
so we stocked the box with a variety of 
easter eggs as well as some little fuzzy bunnies, chicks, lambs, birds
and even some wool felted peeps!

We also used one of my halloween village trees
(perfect for nests and little birds) 
A bird house, mini watering can, 
scoops, and two buckets. 

The little click apart eggs have been 
excellent fine motor practice as we've played games
hiding little critters and chicks inside them!

Happy Spring!
