If you’re new to my blog you may not know that I currently receive speech therapy. What?! You actually thought these words were mine? Well they are but mommy writes them down for me. I’m don’t articulate very well and mommy being the mommy she is decided that I needed help. Since I have a 9 year old autistic brother she was even more worried about my speech although to be honest I don’t think she has anything to worry about. Whenever my speech therapist comes over to visit she always brings a treat. Whether it’s books or activities, there’s always something to stir my imagination and help me build the skills I need to succeed. Mommy had long learned of sensory boxes and have always wanted to incorporate one in my day to day activities. When mommy learned of My Sensory Box she knew she just had to give them a try. We received the fall edition of the My Sensory Box but due to the crazy holiday schedule our review got lost. We’re here to change that and introduce you to My Sensory Box.
So what is a sensory box and why would anyone need one? Here is what is taken from the website:
My Sensory Box provides hands on learning that is both visually and texturally attractive. Each box includes activities that are developmentally appropriate and stimulating. My Sensory Box, delivers to children, endless opportunities for creative play while simultaneously developing their fine motor skill, sorting and classification skills, their vocabulary and so much more.
Why Sensory Play:
Children are natural explorers and they cannot resist the opportunity to explore and discover the world around them. Sensory play is an ideal way of learning for young children. They provide children with the opportunity for observation and manipulation through a hands-on learning experience. Sensory play also helps build self-esteem by allowing children to create, play and ultimately accomplish what they had intended to do. With endless possibilities available, sit back and follow your child’s lead as they discover their world through imaginative play.
We received in our Fall My Sensory Box: acorns, scarecrow, a pail, spoon, fall leaves, turkey finger puppets, fillable apple, slinky, gourds, pumpkins, green and yellow dried peas. There was so much to do with this box. I could learn the colors of the peas, I could also watch the different colors that the leaves turn in the fall. Mommy could tell me the difference between the pumpkin and the gourd and what makes the alike as well.
Mommy placed my dried peas in a container. It was messy but it was also a lot of fun mixing the peas together and scooping them into the pail. If your mommy is worried about the mess of a sensory box, she can spread a sheet to help keep it clean. Mommy doesn’t care too much about me making a mess when I’m learning and experimenting. After all all it takes is a vacuum (which I’m afraid of) but it does make a mess pretty clean.
My Sensory Boxes are geared towards your child’s age and is a lot of fun as you can see. They are safe and educational and also enhances your little one’s developmental skills. This is by far one of the most fun subscription boxes that I have reviewed to date! Not sure why it took us so long to do it but now that I’ve done it I’m very happy I did.
My Sensory Boxes can be purchased either via monthly subscriptions or yearly. A monthly subscription is $29.95 or $330 for an entire year with a month free. My Sensory Box makes a great gift and mommies and daddies can always have the grandparents buy a subscription. Nothing like getting a box in the mail just for you.
