Even though Jillian is only turning 2 tomorrow, I might need to steal this idea. She has some sensory issues, and I think this would be fab! Thanks for the idea!

We started using sensory boxes with my daughter when she was 2 — she LOVED them. Let me know if you want some links to ideas for them.

I still use a sensory box with my son. It helps a lot.

How fun! My mom used to make things called “Cozy Bags” where she’d put flax seeds in cloth, sew it together, and you can microwave them to be little heat bags. :) Happy WW!

Sensory boxes are great, aren’t they?! My kidlets both love them. And when my wee girl doesn’t have one to dig in, she finds the dirt outside. Hope all enjoy the exploration! :>

Ha! I KNOW! I kept finding seeds she had dropped on the floor, table . . . window sill, and I would instantly freak out before I remembered what they were!

That is awesome! I may have to try this out with my 2 1/2 year old. Very cool.

That looks so cool! I’m going to have to try something like that with my preschooler and my toddler!

I love this idea.

Where do you purchase your curriculum?

Reply

rachel September 8, 2010 at 2:01 pm

I don’t use a set curriculum; there are so many free preschool resources available online that I’m just pulling from them. In this post, I list the main sites I am using for ideas/printables: http://schoolinthekitchen.followinginmyshoes.com/skills-and-concepts/preschool/

Can’t wait to see more ideas from you!

I need to email you, btw, I’ll try to do that after I get some work done around here.
