The latest fun in the sensory table is edible!! Needless to say, it has been a hit!
This was Carter first thing in the morning. He is NOT happy to see the lid on. Can you tell?
And he's off!! I added spoons and the toys with handles and scoops. I'm going to try and keep these on hand for daily practice. We're gearing up for self-spoon feeding.
Hard @ Work!
His work area.
You do not need a sensory table (sand and water table) to do this! Tupperware works just as well!
Check out the skills involved in this fun:
- Smell, check!
- See, check!
- Taste, check!
- Touch, check!
- Hear, check!

This is another Early Childhood skill that the little ones are developing at the moment. Carter's trough-o-Cheerios is defiantly letting him practice "self help." However, we may be practicing Childhood Obesity Skills too....he LOVES going into his room and grabbing some Cheerios! Ha ha!
