If you’ve been keeping up with our stories on Instagram, you may have seen that I’ve been creating a weekly DIY Sensory Kit for our little boys. I really needed something that would hold their attention for a long period of time while the big boys do their morning school work. The boys have loved waking up on Monday mornings with a new them for their kit. It brings them so much joy and keeps them busy exploring and tinkering for hours. The DIY St. Patrick’s Day sensory kit is a perfect way to introduce the holiday to little ones with tactile play. The rainbow rice is my favorite to this box and something I have only previously done for our big boys so, I was excited to share that with the littles in this kit!

What’s in this St. Patrick’s Day DIY Sensory Kit?
This sensory kit is a boxed collection of all things St. Patrick’s Day themed. It’s highlight feature is the rainbow sensory rice. The boys love the texture, colors, and endless options for play and expiration. This kit also includes plastic gold coins, black plastic cauldron pots, mini rainbow statues, multi-colored pipe cleaners, shamrock cookie cutters, play doh, jumbo shamrock sequins, a wooden scoop, and glitter shamrock picks. I love using these GLIS boxes from Ikea to keep everything in one place. By giving the boys a curated box like this with dividers, allows them to help tidy up and put everything back where it belongs within the box, once they’re finished exploring for the day.
