Our sensory bin this week was actually one that I made when I was speaking last week at the Alberta Home Educators Conference. I made a simple Spring sensory bin during my session to demonstrate to those who attended how easy it is to make sensory bins.
To make this simple spring sensory bin, I used rice dyed green to look like grass, play bugs of different textures, stretchy frogs, feathers, glittery pom-poms, green tissue paper, a plastic Easter egg, green ribbon, flower shaped muffin liners, a silk leaf, and a metal scoop.
I love all the bright colours in this sensory bin. The different textures such as the fluffy feathers, the scaly plastic spider, the crinkly tissue paper, the smooth metal on the scoop, the silky ribbon, the bumpy dragonfly, and the grainy rice make this such a fun bin to play in.
