spice jar sorting
For the activity above, I simply repurposed some old spice jars and their lids with various items that fit through the holes (Q-tips, tooth picks, skinny pieces of paper, and even a broken necklace chain). Also, an added challenge was that not every spice jar had holes big enough for the Q-tips, so she had to figure out which items fit where. My three year old really enjoyed this activity for a few days but now she definitely needs some more challenge!
Her baby sis loved the activity too (below)
This “sand” stuff (above) is great. My daughter received it as a gift over the holidays so I’m not sure where it can be purchased. Basically, it is sand that is somewhat moldable and feels very soft, and never dries out. A great sensorial activity! She plays with it for at least an hour at a time! Here are a few photos of the fun stuff she does with it:

Poking holes in the sand ^
Burying coins ^
It would also be good to practice writing letters in, but we haven’t done that yet.
