J’s been starting to sort and is able to (sometimes) correctly identify colors. So, I decided to do a series of different colored sensory trays to build on this new skill.
Today, I put together a blue tray. I was going to include anything blue that I saw around the house. However, I ran across these fish foam stickers. I immediately changed my mind and made a blue ocean tray.
I used white beans as a neutral background with clear marbles to give it a “bubbly” effect. I then added blue pom poms, foam stickers, and pipe cleaners made to look like fish. I always add a container of some sort (the blue bowl) and a spoon for filling/dumping.
As usual, he spent most of the time filling and dumping out the blue bowl.
Sensory trays are such a big thing around here and they keep his attention for so long! He sits like this for ages just exploring the box.
For more sensory tray ideas, read my post about Why I Do Sensory Boxes.
Stay tuned for more colored sensory trays!

Hi there! Came across your blog, It’s great!
We just did a blue sensory bin this week too. I added blue tinsel. Of course of was the most popular and the most messy. He He. So much fun.

I love the idea of doing single color themed sensory trays. It seems like you switch our your sensory activities pretty frequently. I have been trying to be more flexible based on Boogie’s interest. How often do you switch? Do you let J guide you based on his interest or do you set a time ahead of time? Thanks for linking up to WOTT!
