For today’s junk play, I have set up a very simple sensory bin with packing peanuts. And since Easter is upcoming, we decided to spice up a sensory play for a toddler with a bit of yummy chocolate!
If you received packing peanuts in your incoming mail, think about the ways to use it for play before shipping it off to another destination or trashing it.
Sooo…. grab a cardboard box or plastic bin, or anything else you have on hand and threw packing peanuts inside. Add a package of small Easter egg chocolates and bunch of random items you have around the home. We used things like small toys, small containers (jewelry and such), laces, or you can use Easter themed items like empty plastic eggs, small chicks, bunnies, flowers, etc. Whatever you have around will be fine. After all, my toddler was only interested in finding chocolate eggs!
Today’s post is part of 60 Day Junk Play Challenge and we had as material prompt today PACKING PEANUTS.
