This month's Sensory Box is filled with red! We have apples, flowers, feathers, puff balls and more! I used rice as the filler and put a couple bowls and spoons in.
I let him explore on his own for a while then I started asking questions and exploring/modeling with him. After seeing him count the puff balls I pulled out an egg carton and some tweezers to add a little motor skill practice.
A Sensory Box is purely exploration. Children are to just have free rein to play and explore. Do not push and do not "ask" of them during this time. If they are at a loss of what to do with the box then it is a good idea to model playing yourself but try not to "tell" them how or what to play.
