Blast Off-- Our Space Sensory Tub

5-4-3-2-1 Blast Off!
That's all you heard this morning after we set up our Space Sensory tub. My son has been begging for a space sensory tote-- well, he finally got it! I used black aquarium rocks for the filler. The tote has a felt Earth and spaceship, aliens, alien fingers, glow in the dark stars, shooting stars, astronauts, flying saucers, space beads, star beads, alien peg people, and so much more! After my son started playing with it, he added his own contribution-- Buzz Lightyear! As I come up with more ideas, we definitely continue to add to it. 
For those of you that do not know what a sensory tub/tote is, it is a tub or a bin that you fill up with various items to let your child be hands-on. Sensory activities provide children with another meaningful avenue of learning.
