May Sensory Tub - Angry Birds

We recently bought an iPad and Angry Birds was one of the first games we installed. Talk about fun (and addictive)! Within a few days Angry Birds was all the rage in our house and I knew I had to create a sensory tub and mini unit with these birds in mind. :)

Here's what's inside:
:: stone pebbles
:: lots of wooden cubes
:: various pieces from our Lincoln log set
:: plastic (Easter) egg
:: egg shaped gems/sequins (these are hidden under the rocks and inside of the large egg)
:: jumbo pom-pom/puffs in Angry Bird colors
:: feathers
:: acrylic ("glass") cubes
:: metal container with Angry Bird picture
:: glass votive
:: nest (from the pet section at our local pet store)
:: cardboard box with TNT logo

My very manly husband made this slingshot in less than 15 minutes using stuff from around the house/yard and this tutorial as a guide. James has been using it to launch the puffs/birds all over the place!

I won't have time to share the mini unit until (hopefully) later this week. My poor girl is teething BIG TIME and is very snuggly and needy as a result. My arms are happily preoccupied with holding and cuddling her as much as possible. :)

My son is 4 and he has been asking to go to school since he was three. I am a graduate with a home school teaching degree. I feel that working with the Angry Birds will really keep my son's attention. His attention span is about as long as that of a four year old, unless it is interesting to learn about. Thank you for your blog!

My son is addicted to Angry Birds. He's just about 5 and I would would like to introduce him to to schooling in a way that will keep his attention. I have a diploma in home school teaching, I praise the Lord for that. I never imagined I would actually have to use it until now. I believe I will slowly introduce school in a fun way with Angry Birds!
