I got this baby pool at Target for five bucks and it is so tiny! Today we were playing with our beans in the sensory tub and Drake kept wanting to climb in it. I couldn't blame him so I decided to dump them into the pool (dried it out first). He loved it! He was having a ball dumping, pouring, kicking, squishing his toes and rolling towards the end:) I think I expect to much from him sometimes so this was a great way to let him let loose and still keep my beans from going every where. A Tip: I made cloth draw string bags to store my sensory items in so that they don't go to waste (Rice, Beans, River Stones etc.). This way I can reuse them and not feel like I'm waisting food.
This activity is great for sensory development, developing pouring skills, and just having a good time!
We use one of those flat under the bed covered boxes for our daughter's rice pit. The pool is a great idea.ReplyDelete
