Those of you who live near a Michael's or some type of hobby store don't know how lucky you are! There's no such place here in Bermuda and that, as you can imagine, is a sad, sad thing for this artsy-farsty-craft-lovin' gal.
Of course my husband thinks it's a GOOD thing I can't go out and buy art and learning supplies whenever I have a whim to (which is often). And I'll admit it is kind of a good thing because I've been learning to dig deeper into that creative corner of my mind to come up with homemade versions of the stuff I can't buy.
That said, this month's sensory tub required some creative improvisation. Sure, there's more I could've/would've done if I had the materials, but that's just the nagging perfectionist in me. Truth is James is going to love it and that's all that matters.
Here's what's inside:
- Popcorn kernels
- Mini football confetti
- Mini corn stalks (I cut up raffia and tied it in bunches)
- Puff balls
- Teeny tiny wooden bowls/jugs
- Wooden napkin rings
- Leaf die cuts from my scrapbooking stash
- Fir tree embellishments also from scrap stash
- 2 wooden bowls for scooping/pouring
- A chenille stick
- A few Native American figurines (from a Safari Ltd. Toob - I LOVE these collections!)
