I seriously LOVE Andrea over at Jada Roo Can Do! Every month (I look every day for an activity) she posts all the learning activities that she is doing for the month and it's always a "theme". The teacher in me LOVES this and the Mommy in me LOVES that I can get the ideas from her site and do it with little work on my part (leaves me time for other fun things, like playing dinosaur feet, farm, trains, tractors, band, and reading books).
Anyhoo... for March Andrea blogged about a sensory bin using split peas! I had already started collecting a few trinkets for St. Patrick's Day. Then we took a Friday night trip to Wally World and picked up some split peas for our sensory bin.
Jackson enjoyed playing and finding all the treasures, although before too long all the treasures were out of the box and a tractor had taken up residence. I even found Andy running his fingers through the split peas a few times during the day. They feel really silky and smooth.
Time for bed, there is a baby crying for me!
