Life cycle of a turtle sensory box

My preschoolers loved this sensory box. I took a clear 99 cent Target shoe box and filled with white aquarium gravel. Then I added a clear sandwich container with aquarium blue gems for the "water". I added in the life cycle of the turtle figures along with some rocks and shells. This can be used with or without water.

We read A Turtle's Life by Nancy Dickmann.


  1. How fun! My kids love a fun sensory bin, too. And add in there some turtles...I think they would be jumping in excitement :) I would love to invite you to share this post (and more of your stuff, too) with us at our link up party: Share It Saturday has a bunch of great bloggers sharing their creative ideas each week...and you would fit right in :)
    I hope to see you there!
