Make a Sensory Seek and Find Present
We love giving homemade gifts and we love giving sensory gifts to kids. This present is a fun one because it’s simple to make, and fun to receive. We made two of them for a recent weekend when we attended two birthday parties!
You will need:
- A container with a lid (We used old laundry soap tubs- you just have to keep your eye out for a container that a small hand will fit in.)
- Treasures- marbles, coins, stones, buttons, you know: treasures
- A Sensory Filler- rice, beans, lentils, corn- we used some Rainbow Rice we had made.
- A photo of your treasures and glue (optional)
Lay out your treasures together and photograph them. I took a picture from a little ways back so I would be able to crop it close to the treasures. I made a lucky guess for size when I printed them out.
Glue or tape your image onto your container– I glued mine inside the lid.
Mix the treasure with the sensory filler, close up your container and decorate; easy as that!
My kids really enjoyed deciding which treasures to include in the gift they were giving, and of course we hope their friends have fun seeking them out!
