Make your own Sensory Tub

Sensory Tubs are great DIY hands-on tactile experiences for kids, and the perfect sensory activity for parents who aren’t fond of mess.

Remember: What starts in the tub, stays in the tub.

They’re inexpensive to make. You can get creative while you’re creating one. And you can add whatever you like to your tub; stimulating your senses in the way that works best for you. This type of hands-on tactile play is great for bringing distracted minds back into focus, ready to discover their senses.
