Messy Monday #5

It's Messy Monday time again, where i invite you all to link up your messy and sensory play posts.
 We've had a really busy week this week and that combined with Alex being up and down in the night means that unusually we've not done loads of messy play. 
I did however find the time to make a sensory tub for both of the boys based on the everyones favourite book The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I don't think there are many children who haven't read this story. 

In there box there was green shredded paper left over from Easter, green leaves cut of of sugar paper, tissue paper cut into hexagons as featured in the illustrations, a foam egg,  toy foods featured in the book, some butterflies and of course a caterpillar and a copy of the book.
 Of course Seb dove straight in, naming the things in the box and matching them up with the book. This was great for both his vocabulary and memory,  working out which items went with which part of the story. Of course we had to have a munch on the plastic food and finally arrange each beautiful butterfly on their very own leaf.
 I put some of the pieces on the floor for Alex to explore, let him feel the different textures on the fruits and a look at the bright colours in the book.
  So now it's your turn to add your links below
All i ask is that you link back to my blog or display the Messy Monday badge(in my sidebar) on your post, and please try to visit the others who join in.
