Like many of my ideas I was inspired by Happy Hooligans' post because her ideas are just perfect for little ones and super easy for me to put together!
Here is what I came up with:
Nothing is expensive and most of it we had at home:
mini heart containers
mini heart erasers
heart ice cube tray
empty baby food jar
assorted red/pink/white containers
Valentine lid container
various scoops, tongs, spoons.
pink and red heart table scatter
I can tell you all of this was bought at Dollar Tree, Joanne's, dollar section of Target, and Ikea ( ice cube tray) and most was probably bought last year when Valentine's day items were 50% off!
Sassy Sis was immediately drawn to the tray and spent the better part of the morning playing with it, even inciting the Owl to come and have a look as well.
Putting together a sensory tote or tray doesn't need to take a lot of time nor does it need to be expensive.
We'll play with this for the next couple of weeks and then we all of the components will go in a large ziploc bag for easy storage until next February!
