I put this together on one of those days where I needed something new for J to do, so I threw anything I could find in a sensory box. I started to call this sensory box “Everything but the kitchen sink” because there were so many random things inside. When I spotted the random cardboard tube, I remembered this post from We Can Do All Things. I taped that bad boy to the side of the box and I knew we were in business!
Let me tell you, this box of stuff kept J engaged for the longest time! He loved putting things in the tube and watching them come out the other side.
Here’s J pouring in the cup of buttons and watching them slide across the floor.
See that flash? It’s a Hot Wheel that’s about to run underneath the oven…oops! The Hot Wheels were awesome because they came shooting out of the tube and across the room. This really made J giggle.
J loves sensory boxes, this one especially. We’ve pulled this out several more times throughout the week.
We do this all the time. Paper towel rolls are the most fun ever! I think for Christmas I might just give my kids a box full of TP and paper towel rolls, LOL. Great post!
What fun! We used paper towel rolls the other day with cars, but I never thought of taping it to the side! That would be much easier for my little guy to use. Great idea! 🙂

Great sensory box! Those hot wheel cars can sure zoom across those wooden floors.
