Share: Sensory Containment Containers: Its on the Shelf

Share: Sensory Containment Containers: Its on the Shelf:

I made these SENSORY CONTAINMENT CONTAINERS out of juice lids, milk lids, pop lids, small tuna cans and they are perfect for little hands to hold, examine and wow over. Noticing details, odds and ends, flowers, shapes, textures and a touch of nature, these have turned out to be a great asset to our Montessori shelves. I added recycled levis to the edges from the seams of the jeans for more added tactile experiences. These are shown in our picture below, bottom left hand corner. I made their own storage box out of cardboard and bumpy sensory material. Were upto about 50 rounds now and building.

I love, love, LOVE, that you cover reused cardboard boxes. I was worried that my covered shoe boxes were not up to par for the Montessori method, but after seeing you do it too I don't feel so bad. It also seemed more clear that in this throw away society we live in now we impart a reuse mentality into the children.
