Farm Sensory Box

And now...the farm sensory box! My mother-in-law actually introduced us to the sensory box ideas. She put this one together for the kids.

The filler is feed corn bought from a feed store or grain elevator. We gathered different size farm animals, tractors, wagons, a feed trough, a stable, fence pieces, etc. (I have seen farm sets at Hobby Lobby.)

A lot of times the kids will set up a farm next to the box with the items and measure out the corn to feed each animal.

The great thing about these boxes is that when they are done playing, you throw everything back in the tote and close the lid.
