Toddler Sensory Activity: Treasure Box

Toddler Sensory Treasure Hunt

A quick treasure box made for George with recycled material and real coins.

I received a package and absolutely love this crinkle paper stuff so I had to use it and knew George would love feeling it.

I threw in some real coins and mixed it up a little bit [most of the coins just fell to the bottom] and put a couple coins on top to entice George into the sensory tub.

George was excited to find the coins right away…. but then…. are there more? Where are they?

Time to dig through and hunt for them…

He emptied out the treasure box to find the coins. 

Sorted them out, put the paper back in and kept going.

That crinkle paper is an excellent sensory material! Something different for George to explore for sure and fun to dig through to find his treasures.
