We love sensory tubs! Much like pouring or water tables you see in preschool classes , these mini versions are fun to play with at home and offer great learning . This one is all soft and silky, a great change from our usual.

Gather your materials you will need a bin ( we love dish ones from discount stores) , some cotton balls and silk flower petals. If you want add so confetti , but it will sink to the bottom which may frustrate your kids.

My son grabbed some tongs and sorted the petals and cotton balls. But there is no wrong way to play!
