September Sensory Box

Sensory boxes are a favorite of Jake's. He loves to pour and scoop and use his imagination. I love watching because this is really an activity he can do alone. I love to see what he does with the simple supplies within the box. 
The box is basic with: beans, a cup, bowl, measuring cups, apples, feathers. Jacob loves to scoop and pour the beans. He really enjoys 'cooking-up' his own recipes. 

I also added an egg carton with tweezers and balls. I want him to work on hand-eye coordination. He loved this but it took a lot of concentration. He was able to put them all in their respective spots before I pulled it away. I chose to pull it away so that he did not get frustrated or lose patience.
He did a great job but I expect to see him get better picking up the balls with practice.

  1. very helpful to see your lesson plan! Enjoy following your blog. My son is 2 1/2 and is into the sensory boxes. ...he decided to make his own yesterday.....his filler was: eggs. :-) he had a good time playing & cleaning up. Our autumn box will have a less messy filler.
