Looking for an inexpensive and fun activity? Make a sensory bin. Sensory bins are great for exploring and learning. You can find a lot of bin fillers at home and at your local Dollar Tree. You can even ask your kids to help you create your own sensory bin. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
-sand and seashells
-water and rocks
-toy/Lego wash station
-ice cubes and measuring cups
-water, foam letters, and scooper (Alphabet soup)
-water assorted things from around the house that can get wet (color sorting)
-popcorn kernels, rice, beans, and pom poms
You can use just about anything for a bin. Things like plastic containers, old pots, small plastic swimming pool, bath tub, and etc. The great part about sensory bins….you can add and take away anything you want! These can be played with inside on a rainy day or outside in the sunshine. Get creative and have fun!
