Alphabet Sensory Box

alphabet sensory box

This alphabet sensory box was a big success yesterday with my youngest preschoolers.  I simply put a set of alphabet magnets in a box and added a bag of alphabet uncooked pasta.  The children had fun using tongs and spoons to find the letters.  I asked them to identify the letters as they found them.

To try to contain the mess that usually is associated with sensory boxes, I always put a sheet or shower curtain under the box.  That way I am able to pour any spills right back into the box.
