If you’ve been here since the beginning, then you’ll remember the “diggers and dumpers” sensory box I made for C as a Christmas present. It was a big hit and C still enjoys it but I’ve been feeling like it’s time to change it up. So a few weeks ago I exchanged the pinto beans for black beans (to imitate soil) and put together this vegetable garden sensory box.
Then paint each row orange, red, and purple (for carrots, radishes, and eggplant – of course).
When you’re done, they’ll look something like this.
