Let your preschooler enjoy the last days of summer with a beach sensory tub. Sensorial awareness is so important for young children, and the beach sensory tub from Counting Coconuts is a great way to bring a bit of the beach home.
In addition to giving directions for making the beach sensory tub, Counting Coconuts has directions for making sandy playdough. That adds another element of creativity and fun to the “beach” experience.
The beach sensory tub is an activity my children would have loved when they were preschoolers. It could easily have science extensions as well. I often had a container with sand for Will and Christina to dig in for buried treasure. Seashells or fossils were favorite treasures. Then Will and Christina matched each seashell or fossil with an identifying card that had a picture of the seashell or fossil along with its name.
On Counting Coconuts, you’ll find photos and directions for making sensory tubs about once each month. Here’s a link to all of Counting Coconuts’ themed sensory tubs.
Does your child have a favorite educational activity using sand?
Awesome! Counting Coconuts just published “Beach Themed Activities” with practical life, sensorial, language, math, AND art activities! And here’s a link to another wonderful post Counting Coconuts published four days ago: “Summer Nature Table.”
