St Patrick Day Sensory Bin ~ Digging for Lucky Coins

With the fact that Valentine’s Day is now over, I decided it was time to change our sensory bin out. So our first sensory bin for the next month is….

St Patrick Day Sensory Bin ~ Digging for “lucky coins”

Later on in the month when the kids loose interest in the bin, I plan on adding some sand sifters so they can sift for the lucky coins.

So whats in the St Patrick Day Sensory bin?? 

  • 2 bags of lucky coins I picked up from Big Lots for $1
  • And sand we had on hand.
  • I also added a couple plastic containers to be able to collect the coins in, a few sets of tongs, scoops, a funnel and an old dressing container. This kept the boys busy for a few long periods today. They did end up of course with sand on the ground, but sand is wonderful sensory input and vacuuming is a great practical life skill 🙂
Using the tongs to pick up the coins and put them in the container was great fun and wonderful fine motor practice.

The kid had a great time using our digging for lucky coins sensory bin.

    • Michelle,
      It took me a while to finally take the plunge into sensory bins for my kids once I did my kids loved them and I wish I would have done it sooner. I’m sure your kids will love it if you do set one up for them. Thanks for stopping over and commenting!! Have a blessed weekend!!

    • Our Home Of Many Blessings,
      Thank you so much. It is simple fun, but kids and sand just go together. Give them something to find in the sand and it keeps them busy for hours. I’m sure your little ones will love it. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!!
