Time for Tots---sensory tub

I just have to write this post about a fabulous Etsy shop. It is called Time for Tots. Here is the link.

The site offers game packs and sensory tub fillers. They are fabulous!

Over the last several years I have spent time researching, creating, collecting and making games for my boys. It is a lot of work, and it takes a lot of time. Well, now you can go to Time for Tots and they have done all the work for you. Not only that, but each activity comes with suggestions to use these materials in other ways. The other positive is that it saves you money. The materials that you would have to buy to create these games and tubs would cost you more than they charge, because of the nice variety.

The first item I will post about is the autumn sensory tub. It comes with fillers which are yellow and green beans (I have no idea what kind but they are cool and colorful). You also get a bag of autumn themed things to put in it. Some leaves, a few fruit and pumpkins, some fuzzy balls and much more.

Here is an upclose shot.



I put mine in a tuperwear bin. You supply the bin, the rest is supplied by Time for Tots. It even comes with a tweezer.

I had really bought this for Monkey who is 4.5. But Alligator saw me putting it together and kept yelling “DAT, DAT” and pointing. So I watched him closely and played with him and let him go at it. As you can see, he was so pleased to get it placed on his tray.


He very carefully started picking at the items. 


Alligator isn’t one to put a lot of things in his mouth, so I wasn’t too concerned with him. But I did watch him closely. He was having so much fun, picking up things and laughing.


He also enjoyed pulling thing out and throwing them in the floor. After the second time, I gave him a bowl, and he had fun putting things in there. It seemed he just wanted a place to put them.


As you can see he had a great time.

Again, I am so thrilled with this purchase. I will be featuring the other items I bought as we get them out and play with them.

I purchased the items on my own, and loved them so much that I chose to post about it. I did not receive any reimbursement.

  2. Those are the cutest pictures! So glad you are enjoying the sensory tub and look forward to hearing about how your little ones enjoy the other kits. =)

    Thanks for spreading the word about Time for Tots!

  3. Wow, not only did Alligator love them but so does Monkey. He added a bulldozer to it and injoyed himself for a good half an hour. He even added a little scooper too.
    When Alligator got up from his nap, he was yelling "dat dat" again as soon as he saw it. So again, he played with it.
    Thank you "activity mom" for this wonderful product!

  4. Oh my goodness, how fabulous! This just absolutely makes my day. Thank you for posting about it and seeing the tub in such great use just makes me smile from ear to ear.

    We appreciate you so much!
