We have moved on from the letter A to letter B, so we decided that it would be fun to get our water Beads out in our sensory box. We 'grew' these beads back in October (before I started bogging) for some halloween sensory play & they have kept in an airtight container since then! If you haven't used water beads yet they are great fun & can be picked up cheaply from e-bay, being designed for flower arrangements. Please be careful with young children as they must not be eaten & could be a choking hazard.
On the first day we played with the beads, we used some things form our kitchen role play area, including Bowls, spoons & cups. I was served many cups of bead tea & bowls of bead soup!
When we got the box back out the next day we went for some small world Building fun, with Bob the Builder (UK TV character) & some other digger toys. This is the first time we have used our digger toys in a small word environment & it went down very well. The diggers were used to move the beads around & put them in & out of the bowls. Daniel (2.5) enjoyed the box so much we have had it out several times since!
Why not take a look at some other things we have played with in our box:
