Crinkly Shredded Paper Sensory Box

This past Christmas, my sister gave me a beautiful culinary gift of pastas and sauces sitting neatly in a colander atop a mound of white, crinkly, shredded paper. My family enjoyed the cuisine, but we have also enjoyed using the paper it was wrapped with as a part of a sensory box. Our most recent use of this paper for a sensory box followed a pastel theme to go along with the warmer weather we've been experiencing and upcoming spring.

Our sensory box included porcupine balls, straws, and pom-poms. This provided a good range of textures, sizes, and colors to explore.

Yes, it made a pretty big mess, but it was easy enough to clean up with a good sweeping. Baby Bear even thought the cleaning up was fun because he got to help use the broom.

We had a lot of silly fun with our crinkly shredded paper sensory box!
With Easter just around the corner, crinkly paper should be pretty easy to come across for more sensory box fun. I have also seen small bags of it in the craft section of Wal-mart near the faux flowers during other times of the year. I bet this box would be even more fun with colored paper!
