This Monsters Sensory Bin has got to be one of my all time favourites. The little sponge monsters with the googly eyes are pretty darn adorable!
Last week, I made a Monsters themed sensory bin. This was such a fun bin to create and for the kids to play with.
As the main 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. They were fun to make and were a great addition to the monster sensory bin.
My kids really enjoyed this sensory bin. Their favourites were the large sensory ball that contained a light up ball inside that jiggled around and the BumbleBall. They also enjoyed using the colourful links as a necklace while they played.
This monster sensory bin is especially fun for kids who love the Monsters movie. You can add in some of their favourite characters from the film.
There are a variety of textures includes because of the squishy sponges, the hard plastic on the links and the Bumbleball. There are also lots of other textures to explore with the wood, the fuzzy bits on the pompoms and on some of the sensory balls.
Be sure to use caution if making this sensory bin for little ones. The googly eyes can come off the sponges, especially if they chew on them and that could pose a choking hazard. As with all sensory play, adult supervision is recommended.
