Winter Sensory Bin
I finally finished up our winter sensory bin this weekend and the kids have been enjoying it, even my niece who is here to join us for school Monday and Tuesday this week.
I used pasta that I dyed blue, and blue and white pom poms for the filler.
What is found inside this Winter sensory Bin:
-blue dyed pasta
-plastic winter characters
-snow covered fake trees (ones for Christmas Villages)
-styrofoam balls and some toothpicks to make “snowmen” with them
-blue and white bead necklaces
-Containers to tong the items into
While I was still getting the rest of the stuff out for the bin and putting it together, the kids couldn’t wait to dig in. So they started playing and having fun with what we had in there already.
Ethan had a lot of fun making snowmen out of the foam balls and toothpicks
Using the tongs to pick up cotton balls was another favorite and such a great way to improve fine motor skills!
There are many different things we do with our sensory bins so we can have fun as well as learn at the same time. We work on finding all of 1 item and put them into containers, we make patterns with the different fillers, we practice counting, use different vocabulary, and more.
What is your favorite way to use sensory bins for learning? Leave a comment letting me know, I would love to hear from you.
