So I’ve taken a bit of detour from crafting lately to focus on fun activities for my 2 year old. One of the things I’ve found online that I thought she might like is a sensory box. I was originally intending on doing one for St. Patrick’s Day and a different one for Easter, but they combined to make what I’ve entitled “A Leprechaun’s Garden.”
To make this sensory box, I used a bin, scoop, foam shamrocks, multicolored coins, wooden carrot ornaments, butterfly confetti, flower erasers, and split peas. Most of these items were $1 each, so this entire venture was less than $10. (They were all purchased from the dollar store or Walmart.)When I first saw sensory boxes, I didn’t quite “get it”, but I am a total convert. She’s sitting quietly on the floor exploring away. Happy girl, happy mom.
