What’s in the Tub ~ Sports

sensory tubs

In July, our theme at Totally Tots is Sports.  Here are some simple, but oh so fun ideas for you to use in a sensory tub with your little one to explore the theme up close and personal.   


What’s in the Tub?: 

  • Large plant base planted with quick grow grass seed or plant wheat grass (there is a great tutorial at They Hold My Heart).
  • soccer ball and player erasers (I ordered six sets)
  • pencils (which you can insert into the sides of the players so you can really “kick” the balls.)


We started out by setting the players up like they were on a soccer field ~ Aiden and I playing against each other. 


Then I set up an obstacle course for Aiden ~ “kicking” the ball in between the cones.  


His favorite thing to do was to line the balls up in a row and hit them to the other side.


We added some educational fun into our playtime by keeping track of the numbers of goals we each made, counting balls, players, and cones.

What’s in the Tub? is a feature that focuses on fun sensory tub ideas to go along with the monthly theme at Totally Tots.   Click here to see past sensory tub ideas.
