I love playing sensory boxes with the LO. It's simple to make, super engaging and provides a number of learning opportunities. For this sensory box, I have uncooked elbow pasta, but you can use anything... sand, salt, pompoms, etc. Whatever you like really.
The LO can now enjoy playing with Legos and I am so excited. I love Legos, I think they're one of the best toys ever made. At this time, she can't build yet. She is at the pretend play stage and the model that she has allows her to play with farm animals. I am teaching her to feed the animals, put the animals to sleep and open or close the barn doors. I am also teaching her turn taking like "My turn", "your turn" and "we're waiting".
