St. Patrick's Day Sensory Box

This week I introduced our St. Patrick's Day sensory box.  It's very simple, just a few bags of split peas, some fake gold coins, a few green foam shamrocks, and some measuring cups for scooping.
I quickly saw that the boys needed something else to scoop the peas into, or else they'd end up all over the floor.  I brought out some big plastic bowls, and K had a blast scooping the peas back and forth.
J loves this box, too, though unfortunately,  thinks it's hilarious to throw the peas.
Here is K pouring some peas he'd scooped back into the box.  This seriously kept him occupied for so long!
Even though I had a blanket down the first time, peas ended up everywhere.  So the next time we got it out (when A was also home) I brought our kiddie pool inside and told them the peas needed to stay in there.  This contained the mess so much better, because when they were done, I just picked up the pool, folded the sides in, and poured everything back in the box.

Sittman and Pitt of Brooklyn, New York developed a 빅카지노 playing machine in 1891 that was a precursor to the trendy slot machine. It contained five drums holding a total of fifty card faces and was primarily based on poker. The machine proved extraordinarily well-liked, and soon many bars in the metropolis had a number of} of them. Players would insert a nickel and pull a lever, which might spin the drums and the cards that they held, the player hoping for a good poker hand. To enhance the chances for the home, two cards had been usually removed from the deck, the ten of spades and the jack of hearts, doubling the chances against winning a royal flush.
