Glittery Sand Sensory Play | Still Playing School

Glittery Sand Sensory Play

When presented with a container of plain sand for sensory play our kids both chose to add something that reflected their personalities. We ended up with Glittery Sand Sensory Play! This post is part of our monthly Sensory Bin Challenge.

Starting with plain sand our daughter said the texture reminded her of pixie dust. She is very interested in fairies right now! She asked if she could add glitter to the bin and I said yes! She was thrilled!

The kids both loved shaking glitter into the sand using Craft Project Ideas' Glitter Shakers! This was a fun fine motor activity.

E chose several different colors of glitter to make her "pixie dust!" I love how she calls silver "grayish." The glitter made our regular sand so much more magical!

Toddler D added some of his trains to the bin because right now he is a huge fan of Thomas. Just yesterday we wrote about how we used trains for a math lesson!

Every month I love how this series brings out the kids' personality and forces me to sit on my hands a bit as far as the sensory planning goes. You really can do so much with a simple bin with a fun sensory filler. Thomas and pixie dust totally defines our kids right now!
