Toddler SENSORY COINS DROP MANIPULATIVE (jeans recycle #10):
I had cardboard circles cut out left over so I covered them with soft and prickly material swatches that I had left over and made these SENSORY COIN ROUNDS. Then I took a Folgers plastic can and removable lid and covered it with jeans on top and bottom so no finger cuts. I added jeans seams around the edges for sensory touch. And it turned into the perfect manipulative for my TODDLERS. We have already introduced this manipulative this week and is already a favorite. Sometimes I have to SUPERSIZE my props and manipulatives for smaller hands for easier handling to make the activity successful for them and smoother for their learning process.
