With this week’s theme being “Bb”, I thought that a bugs sensory bin would be fun and interesting and would fit in well.
–ladybug magnifying bug view container
-fly’s eyes toy (when you look through it, you see the way a fly sees)
–small plastic magnifying glass
-rice dyed green to look like grass
To dye the rice, put dry rice in a ziploc bag, add about a teaspoon of rubbing alcohol and lots of green food colouring, and shake until well mixed. Then lay it out on a cookie sheet to dry, which does not take long.
Check out my book on sensory activities!
I like the dyed rice, that’s really creative!

This looks like such fun. I think JDaniel would love playing with bugs.

I started doing the Letter of the Week boxes with my preschooler and I’m going to keep this activity in mind as Bb is coming up soon! Thanks for linking up to NOBH! 🙂
