Garden Sensory Tub-001

This week we’ve been talking all about plants and gardens in our house. To go along, I put together a sensory tub which Kaleb has LOVED…and to be quite honest, the rest of the kids have all been crowding around it too.

Can you blame a kid when dirt is involved?

Here’s a little look at what we put inside our sensory tub. Most everything came from our local Dollar Tree or the Target dollar section.

~ Large plastic bin

~ Bag of potting soil

~ Trowel

~ Set of 3 mini terra cotta pots

~ Bug magnifying glass

~ Fake plants and flowers

~ Pebbles {to use as seeds}

~ watering can {not pictured}

~ Plant card/stakes {printed off from the Garden Preschool Pack, laminated, and taped to mini popsicle sticks}

~ bugs…courtesy of our children and not required.

I pulled apart the fake plants and flowers so that we could ‘plant’ them in our garden. The kids had much fun planting and staking the garden, adding a variety of bugs to the garden, and later watering the garden too!
