Today I introduced a new ocean-themed sensory box to my boys. It was a big hit! I bought blue aquarium rocks, some fake ocean plants, and a bag of shells from our local pet store. I also added blue and clear glass beads and some toy fish that I already had on hand. The final touch was filling it with water.
The boys explored the shells and fish, dug in the rocks, poured water in and out, etc. They spent a good hour playing in this!
And of course, my superhero-loving boys had to add Batman, the Joker, and other friends into the mix. Their superhero toys became scuba divers. I love their imaginations!
