Bath Time Sensory Tub

Since our harvest sensory tub ended up being used only outdoors (note: straw is MESSY!), I decided to put together a second tub for James to use indoors.

This fun tub is all about bath time and it was a HUGE hit with James!

Here's what's inside:
:: Cotton balls (aka bubbles)
:: Blue pom-poms
:: Scented bar of soap (this smells sooo good!)
:: Clear plastic crystals
:: Large, blue glass stones
:: Glass baby food jar (for collecting and pouring)
:: A little rubber duckie :)
:: Alphabet beads
:: Fish-shaped bath mat (the suction cups hold the beads perfectly)
:: Tweezers (to transfer the beads to the mat)


~Thank you for your comments!~

Love this one! It is so cute! I was thinking about doing a snowflake sensory bin in Jan/Feb with my kiddos and was thinking of using cotton balls. I was wondering how the cotton balls would work out, so I am so glad to see it with your bath time sensory!

You did it again, Mari-Ann! Awesome sensory tub! The tweezers/suction cup transferring is always popular and great for coordination. How great that in addition to this sensory tub’s wonderful and soothing sensorial attributes, it has language and practical life possibilities as well!http://LivingMontessoriNow.com

Estoy realmente sorprendida por todas las actividades que haces con tu hijo. Tienes una gran imaginación para realizar todas las actividades y realmente eres una gran educadora 'montessori' aunque me parece perfecta la idea de añadir otras técnicas, como en esta actividad, el baño sensiorial me parece algo fascinante. Enhorabuena.

Hola, saludos desde España. Me ha parecido muy interesante tu blog, además muchas cosas las podré poner en práctica con mi hija de 1 año, la bañera sensorial me parece genial, y sobretodo me ha hecho mucha gracia lo de los bloques hielo para congelar tesoros. El verano que viene lo pondré en práctica. Eres muy creativa, enhorabuena por tu blog y un saludo.

Awhile ago you wrote about your rules for sensory boxes. I finally have tried them using your rules. I can't believe my 3 and 2 year old actually keep the sensory stuff in the boxes! Whoa! Now I'm so excited about all the possibilities! Thanks for your help!

BTW, I set it up so they can only use it at the kitchen table while I'm making supper. Lately making supper has been so much quicker and easier!!! Double Thanks!
