J’s been starting to sort and is able to (sometimes) correctly identify colors. So, I decided to do a series of different colored sensory trays to build on this new skill.
Today, I put together a blue tray. I was going to include anything blue that I saw around the house. However, I ran across these fish foam stickers. I immediately changed my mind and made a blue ocean tray.
I used white beans as a neutral background with clear marbles to give it a “bubbly” effect. I then added blue pom poms, foam stickers, and pipe cleaners made to look like fish. I always add a container of some sort (the blue bowl) and a spoon for filling/dumping.
As usual, he spent most of the time filling and dumping out the blue bowl.
Sensory trays are such a big thing around here and they keep his attention for so long! He sits like this for ages just exploring the box.

Stay tuned for more colored sensory trays!
