Our sensory tub this week contained mittens and clothespins.
The children were able to squeeze the clothespins
and hang the mitten on the thick wooden rod.
I was worried that it might be too thick for them to manage.
Sometimes they needed a bit of guidance.
But with practice,
they were successful.
Or they preferred to figure out how the clothespin worked
and took them apart to see the spring.
Yesterday we had a lot of snow
so I filled a big tub and added it to our play.
Now they used the mittens in another way,
a way that was familiar.
When finished playing in the snow,
the mittens could be hung to dry.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that
this sensory tub was used a lot more than I had expected.
