My daughter is a big fan of sensory boxes (and I’m a big fan because they seem to keep her occupied for a decent amount of time). I love trying to come up with fun sensory boxes with a Disney twist! This morning I put together a (very easy) Under The Sea Sensory Box and I wanted to share it with you. I feel like there are so many ways that you could change up this box, with sand or plastic fish for example, but I put it together with things I had around the house.
I make a small commission if you purchase through my Amazon affiliate links, or you can find these products on your own.
To make this sensory box you will need:
Food Coloring (I used a mix of blue and green)
Little Mermaid Toy (at one time, we had this whole set, but my daughter has misplaced Sebastian and Flounder)
The first thing I did was trim down my plastic seaweed. It was much taller than I thought it was going to be so I cut it down to about as tall as the tub. Next, I filled my tub about halfway up with water, added a couple drops of food coloring, and gave it a good stir.
Once the water was the blue color that I wanted, I spread seashells across the bottom of the tub. Then, I placed the seaweed in the water. Finally, I tossed in our Little Mermaid figurine and the box was complete!
After putting this box together, I decided my daughter will definitely be playing with it outside. I think that the water could get out of hand in my house, but it’s perfect for a hot summer day. I hope your kids enjoy this sensory box as much as my daughter does. Happy Playing!
Sending love and magic.
