Pond Sensory Tub

We are currently studying plants, ponds, and the animals and plants that live in and around ponds.  All year, I’ve been making sensory tubs when I can for our science area and I think this is by far their most favorite tub!

I made the lily pads by cutting a thick green sheet of foam into lily pad shapes. I also got some stick-on foam flowers to add some color to them. Pond Sensory Tub

I purchased the plastic life-cycle set at Michael’s for about $7.00. Pond Sensory Tub

The eggs and the tadpole with back legs.  I got the green pebbles at Michael’s as well.  They were on clearance and are a greenish/clear color.  They are in different sizes and shapes, so they really do look like rocks in water. 🙂Pond Sensory TubThe frog on his lily pad!
