Hello Lovely Readers,
I was checking out Pinterest briefly the other day and saw a few sensory ideas for toddlers. I thought about it a bit and came up with my own spin on a sensory activity! Right now Target has little blow up pools for $5.00! I bought one, then threw some beans in the pool! I used beans because rice would be waaay to messy for me, beans are bigger and easier to pick up. I then tossed some toys, measuring cup, spoon and various other fun stuff in it. She LOVES it! I thought about putting it on the hard kitchen floor and decided the beans would travel less if it were on the carpet. It has been so fun and the mess is minimal! If you would rather not have stray beans on the carpet then simply throw a sheet or blanket under the pool then you can easily pick the blanket up and dump the beans back in the pool after play time! We are THRILLED about this! My five and nine year old have even been over to it playing! It’s the perfect indoor “sand box” for a cold, wet day! In the hot, sunny weather just toss it out on the back deck and fill it with water, minus the beans! This is a great idea that is CHEAP and FUN!!! Enjoy!
Love to you all and God Bless!
