Easter sensory tub

I love a good sensory activity as you probably already know! 
As Easter is nearly here i thought i'd make up a sensory tub for Seb, i gave the trusty sand and water table a break and used a storage box for this one.
Easter sensory  
I filled the tub with green shredded paper, glitter eggs, foam easter shapes, fluffy chicks, pretty pipe cleaners for texture, some cake cases and finally a few tiny foiled wrapped chocolate eggs as a treat.
The first thing Seb spotted was of course the chocolate, he dug around finding them(i'd hidden some) and quickly devoured them.

Once the chocolate had gone Seb got on with exploring the rest of the tub! 
He loved the chicks and eggs and thoroughly enjoyed emptying the contents of the box onto the carpet leaving it covered in green paper and glitter. We've kept this out to use right up until Easter and it has become a part of our daytime play. Although he is a little young to 'get' Easter, he has picked up some fab new words from this activity.

Paper beard!
