My three year old daughter has sensory processing disorder. We learned about sensory boxes from out therapists! This article will be the first of many DIY themed sensory bins! With Halloween around the corner, I decided to do Pumpkin Picking as my first one.
For the base we will use black beans.
Now for the other items!
We just followed pinterest instructions and made tiny "vines" from the pipecleaners.
The goal is to pick the pumpkins up and put them into the jack o lanterns. My daughter enjoys these themed sensory boxes and will spend hours playing. We start off with a goal or something we are trying to teach and then let her have free play with the box. This activity is great for fine motor skills and sensory!!!
