We have updated our Sensory Bin a couple weeks ago to a Spring Theme. I love how earthy it turned out and Buga is enjoying the novelty of getting her hands dirty and playing around with the new things she discovers.
I used black beans for the “dirt” and moss for the “grass” in the bin. I put in 6 different flowers – one of each color of the rainbow, tongs, a shovel, plants pots, pretend bugs, a hopping chick and bunny, an backyard book, and insect discovery cards. We have come up with numerous ways to play with these simple objects.
Her favorite thing to do is fill up the pots and put the flowers in them…and then display them around the house for all to see. She also likes to play “flower shop” and go on “bug hunts”. She likes to be a scientist, categorizing what she finds and making drawings for her files. Oh yes, a little imagination goes a LONG way…What ways has your little one found to explore the coming Spring?
