Boîte sensorimotrice océanique

Sur une note un peu plus printanière et chaude, voici une boîte sensorimotrice que j'ai préparée pour ma fille.


J'ai simplement coloré du riz avec du colorant alimentaire bleu. J'ai ajouté deux bateaux, des dauphins, des requins, une pieuvre, un épaulard, deux tortues de mer et un petit canard tout jaune.


J'ai effiloché des gazes pour recréer l'écume. Les petites mains de ma fille se sont fait aller avec grand plaisir dans cette boîte océanique. Et vos tout-petits aussi le feront tout autant!

  1. I feel a little sad about the nets in your sensory box - when we are trying to teach children about a safe ocean and a friendly place for our marine wildlife - nets are certainly not part of this - so many animals get trapped and die in them or are badly injured. otherwise it is very beautiful.

    1. Hello, I want to thank you for stopping by and want I want to rectify something: it is not nets but scum that I create with the medical gazes ;) For your next visit, I have a Google Website Translator at the top right corner of my blog :) We are on the same page regarding the protection of the environment and its living habitat :)

  2. You know - even though this isn't supposed to be a net - including netting material could actually be an opportunity to bring up the discussion about what happens when the fish swim into nets. Sometimes, removing elements from play doesn't actually teach young children about how to care for their world or open discussion about the topic. You could have an entire environmental lesson on what is safe and unsafe for the fish in the sea!!!

    1. Thank you Deborah to bring this excellent point to me. I didn't think of that and I really REALLY love your idea. And you convince me a 100% to add netting as a way to start a discussion about environmental safety for the aquatic life :)

    2. I agree with Deborah. Thinking it was netting wouldn't bother me. I would just assume you were teaching a lesson about the effects of nets or even pollution on marine life. At least that's what would be happening in my Oceanography classroom. With that said, I really like the addition of gauze to simulate foam. It has an interesting texture and fits perfectly in a sensory bin.

  3. Sometimes the simple ideas for teaching can be right there in front of us!! I am inspired by this conversation to do something like that too! My class would love it!

  4. The guaze adds another wonderful sensory material on top of the rice. I could imagine my child pretending they were nets (even if they are supposed to be foam), but she would try to rescue the animals in the net because she hates to see animals getting hurt and she knows nets are bad for sea animals because I think she saw it in Diego. I think it's okay for children to work through negative experiences in imaginative play.

  5. I think it looks like fun for a child (and maybe for the kid inside each of us).
