Activity: Solar System Sensory Tub 22/11/13


Activity: Solar System Sensory Tub

Contents:
  • Dried Marrow Fat Peas (Asteroids)
  • Silver and Gold Sequins (Stars)
  • Sparkle Pom Poms (Galaxies)
  • Glow in the Dark Planets and Stars
  • Scoop
  • Planets Flash Cards


This was really an introductory Solar System activity, based on the fact that Sam knows both the Sun and the Moon from books.  I don't expect he will be able to name the planets at 19 months but its still nice to change up the activity (and I was trying to hold off doing Christmas based activities for as long as possible!)

He really enjoyed scooping the peas up with our new metal scoop (and mainly depositing them into his welly boots!).  He loved playing with the 'ball' and recognised them by colour 'blue' and 'orange' mainly! And he also can say the word 'star'.

We looked at how they matched the flash cards, but not too deeply! As I said, he's only 19 months!

I have attached the flash cards below for printing - the images are not mine! I do not have THAT good a camera - so they are just from google images!
