Monsters Sensory Bin

To celebrate the launch of my new eBook, Sensory Bins, I am featuring one sensory bin or sensory activity each day this week.

Monsters Sensory BinLast week, I made a Monsters themed sensory bin. This was such a fun bin to create and for the kids to play with. For a base, I used fuzzy, glittery pompoms. I added a BumbleBall Jr. (when you pull the string, it bounces about), a wooden monster, lots of squishy sensory balls and creatures, colourful links, googly eyes, and kitchen sponges that the kids made into monsters.

To make our little monsters, all we did was glue googly eyes onto kitchen sponges.

The kids really enjoyed this bin. Their favourite was the large sensory ball that contained a light up ball inside that jiggled around and the BumbleBall.

Just for fun, to accompany the sensory bin, I made the kids a Monsters themed muffin tin lunch. It was certainly not the most nutritious lunch, but they enjoyed it and it did get them all to try at least one bite of the green olive!
