Food Sensory Box


Our Learning theme of the month is Food. I will try very hard not to get on my soap box (for to long) but I must say for me this is one of the most important things for people to learn about. Where does it come from? How did it get to you? How was it made? What does it say about the person who made it? How will you feed yourself if no one is around? This are questions really we all should know and it doesn’t hurt even us grown folk to re-examine them from time to time. 

When I was young I learned how to cook and prepare food from my folks and my aunts. In high school I decided shopping for meals and making dinner every night was a much better job than dishes. When I got to college I enjoyed some popularity for no reason other than I could feed people, and everyone likes to be feed. I also could feed myself. Real, hones,t wholesome, food. I suppose this might be easier these days with several tv channels devoted to cooking (and I love every one of them!) These days I still menu plan and shop, but now I cook or prepare food 4-6 times a day.  This little box was something I threw together for our Little to play with while I did things in the kitchen. 


Oh and added a little scoop. She had a blast. One word of warning if you are going to use rice and your child might throw any of it do this project inside. raw rice can kill birds and we don’t want that!

easiest sensory box every I’m quite sure of it. I used a box that something was shipped in, though you could use a tub or a bucket or a large bowl or really any container. I poured in rice, beans and some pasta. 


This box has a lid so I can just close it up and stick it back on the counter when were done. Ready for the next time we are playing in the kitchen.

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
