We discovered Coco Village about 2 years ago when I was searching for a birthday present for my daughter’s first birthday. I saw a post for a Coco Village kitchen bundle and I bought it. I’m so glad I did, because my daughter has loved playing with it. To date it is her favorite toy to play with and I love how it inspires her imagination.                    Coco Village gifted us these fire station toys. I love that these items are high quality, so I know that they will last for the years to come. They are high quality wooden toys. These toys ar

Repurposed Wipe Dispenser Sensory Box

Repurposed Wipe Dispenser Sensory Box


My daughter has all the bright, colorful, fun toys you could imagine. Usually instead of those toys she would rather play in the dogs dish, explore my makeup drawer, pull all the dirty laundry out of the hamper, or pull all the wipes out of the wipe dispenser. 


When I was looking for activities to work on with Maci I came across an activity that repurposed a used wipe container into a sensory box. If your child is anything like mine I'm sure you have picked up your share of wipes off the ground. I was happy to find an activity that would help fulfill her urge to pull things out of containers. Maci lives for pulling things out of containers and occasionally putting them back.  


The best part about this activity is it is so easy to assemble and well loved. All you need is an empty wipe container (I'm sure you have plenty laying around) and pieces of fabric. I had extra pieces of fabric laying around from sewing projects I had done in the past (I haven sewn in years. I need to start again). If you don't have extra fabric on hand you can use old towels, t-shirts, jeans, etc. or you can purchase some scraps for a reasonable price. For the wipe container, I prefer Huggies. They have some cute containers and the pop lids are easy for little hands to open and close. Another factor I like about Huggies containers is that they have rubber openings so little hands can slide in and out without getting scratched. 


This activity is perfect for working on fine motor skills. You can work with your little one on opening and closing the lid, pulling out fabric, putting fabric back into the container, talk about the different textures of the fabric, and talk about the different colors/patterns of the fabric. If your child is a little older you could hide items in the container for them to find. Example: "I have hidden your small purple bear and yellow letter b. See if you can find them." 


I hope your little one enjoys this activity as much as Maci did. Please let me know if you have any questions and/or comments. 


Have fun learning together,

Marrisa

Jello Dig

Jello Dig Sensory Activity I have recently been looking for new ways to entertain my little one. I feel like she has been playing with the same toys for over 5 months. She seems to feel it too. I do try to rotate her toys so she has a variety to play with. But, I decided it was time to go on Pinterest to search for a few activities I could complete with Maci. I searched for activities that had little prep and possibly things that I already had at home. Each week I would like to complete a new activity. Not only is this fun for Maci, but for me too! Our first activity we tried was the Jello Dig. This is a great sensory activity for children 6 months to 5 years old. Here are some of the supplies you will need: throwaway aluminum tin (purchased ours from the dollar store), package of gelatin, a few of your child's favorite plastic toys (I used Maci's pacifier, four different shapes from her shape sorter, one of her spoons, and teething carrot), apron/bib, digging utensi
