Pasta sensory tray!
I love it when a last minute idea ends up being a real hit with the boys. And this pasta sensory tray was one of those. We had some pasta that needed using up, so I simply stuck it on a tray with a variety of ‘tools’ (stacky cups, a jar opener, ice cream scoop, a tea strainer, and a plastic tray) and put it outside for the boys to play with. 1/2 hour later, they were still at it…transferring, mixing, stacking, sorting. Great for those hand muscles and building up their motor skills. And so easy to set up!
