December sensory tub

This sensory tub didn't end up going to preschool with all the snow and such.  It probably was just fine since it really was a bit messy.

gingerbread play "sand"
1 bag of flour
1 whole can of salt
3 t each of cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, ground cloves

We added a little sifter, some of the regular scoops and spoons and a small funnel.  Later the kids asked for some cookie cutters. They used their hands to smooth a section and pressed in the cookie cutters.  When it was just Lou, he asked for some batman toys. 

Bee and Lou played together for about 20 minutes and then Lou played more by himself for about another half hour.  That may be a record and was worth any mess.  Plus, the whole house smelled like gingerbread cookies!

EDITED TO ADD:  Note Lou's outfit, suddenly he's becoming as picky as Bee when it come to his clothes.  This was his selection after church.  At least he's dressed (the non-dressing was a former issue).
