Want to put together a fun, messy, sensory play activity for your kids for less than a dollar? This sensory tub cost me 59 cents! Seriously! Read on…..
Last week, R (3) was looking over my shoulder as I scrolled through Pinterest and he saw my pin for hosting a messy playdate from the lovely Crystal at Growing a Jeweled Rose. Messy play is one thing, I’ve never been shy about getting messy around here, but Crystal is one brave lady to host an entire play date based on messy play! I take my hat off to her. Anyway, the picture R saw was of a sensory tub filled with blue coloured spagetti. ”That looks like fun! Let’s do that!” (Honestly, I think R enjoys Pinterest even more than I do.)
This would have to be the cheapest sensory tub I’ve ever created for R. (Well, apart from the tubs we do which are filled with water, that is.) All I outlayed was 59 cents for the cheapest packet of spagetti I could find. The other components were items I already had in the cupboard.
Here’s what we created! Fun, right?
So here’s how we made it. So quick and easy!
