DIY Tube Scoop

I have mentioned before that I am back at work with the toddlers and with them, sensory activities are so important! For that reason, I like to change out the sensory tub weekly and this is one that they had fun with last week. I used some green peas (I think that is what they are) that we had on hand but what I thought was pretty clever was the scoops I put together with some tubes that we had on hand, check it out!

I was trying to work with what I have on hand a the school, because that is was teachers do, and these recycled scoops were perfect for the kids! I just cut a paper towel tube (I am anti toilet paper tubes, just a little too gross in my opinion) in thirds and then cut a portion out of one side. It was super simple but perfect for the job and very easy for the little ones to hold.

They had a blast scooping the green peas into the metal muffin tin and it made almost a rain stick like sound as they did it which was a pretty cool bonus.

What clever way do you use paper towel tubes??

    Paper towel tubes slit up the middle lengthwise are great for storing or transporting my expensive paint brushes that just don’t seem to fit in other containers. :-)
