When it is hard to get outside in this chilly weather, these boxes are great. All you need is a box, a “material” (such as colored gravel, white rice, dried beans, popcorn kernels, bird seed, dry uncooked oatmeal, dried pasta.. the list could go on, use your imagination!), and some toys to put in it!

They are great for hand eye coordination, fine motor development, and serves as a great sensory processing integration experience. 

I put a sheet underneath them and let the boys go to town!
