Discovery Box for Kids

Discovery Box for Kids


I got this great idea from a very talented lady. Thanks Aly for the idea. My daughter loves it. I put Macaroni noodles, and dried Pinto Beans in a large Tupperware.
And added little toys that I found and also wrote all the letters on
cut up file folder that I wasn't using(because it was hard). Put a shovel
for digging, although my daughter loves to use her hands more than the shovel.






Lots of fun for kids. I put girly things in the box for my daughter, but you can
also make it specific for your child. Fun indoor project. And make sure you have
a container that can close tightly. You don't want beans everywhere.

Oooo that looks like so much fun! Sensory tables and boxes are so great for a developing child. Way to go you for providing a brain stimulating activity! Okay, the part of me trained in child development will be quiet now... How cute! :)

I hope your liking the box as much as we do! I hope all is well, I haven't seen you in a while. Take care!

This great! I hope to file it away for when I'm a gramma...many years from now my son would say. (Although, he saves things for "The kids I don't plan on ever having," so that gives me hope!)

Such a great idea! I used to love playing the sandbox as a kid... digging for all sorts of goodies! I would love for you to link up to my Ten Buck Tuesday link party! It lasts all week!

Looks like lots of fun! I'm sure the beans and pasta are so much easier to clean up too (than rice or sand). Great idea!

I would LOVE to have you stop by and share this at my For the Kids Link Party! Stop on by!

Great idea! Do you have any suggestions for those children who MOUTH everything? Bigger discovery bin items? {Moose would try and eat the noodles...beans are too small, etc.}

Thanks for linking to Creative Juice Thursday. Hope to see you back this week.

Erin said...

Thanks for all the comments. Nicolette you could always put the discovey items in a water bottle with the beans, noodles and toys until the little curious eater doen't want to put everthing in their mouth. It's a lot of fun to shake a bottle until she/he can touch with there hands. My daughter is still learning not to put everything in her mouth too. I thought that at two years she would be done with that stage...guess not.
XOXO-Erin

i love this idea! the sensory table was always my favorite part of teaching preschool. i bought a small water table to use with Little Man. we put the same thing you put in there :) sometimes i change it up for the seasons. i put easter grass and plastic eggs in there for spring/Easter. isn't it fun to see how amazed they can be with things, but still learn? thanks for stopping by today and the follow. am following you now too! and you both have such beautiful families. blessings, andiejaye @ http://crayonfreckles.blogspot.com
