We went to Walmart and got 5 large containers and 5 smaller containers. Right now I am planning on switching the contents of the boxes every two weeks. But when he gets a little older (next school year, probably), I will switch them out every week.
Each box will have a sensory item, a puzzle, and a game of some kind. I will start adding to this as he gets older.
|Monday- Purple rice, ABC letter "A" find-it pieces, school bus puzzle, foam puzzles.|
|Tuesday- Dried split peas with fros, plastic geometric shapes, A-E two-piece puzzles|
|Wednesday-Mini ABC pasta with a magnifying glass, Guidecraft puzzles, lion puzzle|
|(The Guidecraft puzzles)|
|Thursday- Dried kidney beans with All My Family counters, lacer cards, ABC puzzle|
|Dry pasta with shoe laces and pipe cleaners, stamps and paper, and unifix cubes|
|Tanner always has this "tool bin" available for the boxes, as well|
