Messy Monday: Christmas Sensory Tub

Tags: Christmas

Section: Winter, Sensory

A Christmas sensory tub allows children to experience the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas whilst having a wonderfully hands on tactile experience! It can be good for developing language to describe their experiences as well as using their imagination to make small world scenes (ours quickly became a Christmas fairy garden!)

What you need:

  • rice
  • red food colouring
  • peppermint essence or ground cinnamon (optional for an added sensory experience)
  • a range of Christmas decorations including bells, red and gold beads, Christmas ribbon and any other Christmassy bits and bobs you have lying around!
