I just finished this months sensory bin (we will be changing some items each week)
Easter basket "grass"
Easter Egg Gel Clings (around all sides of bin)
Pastel "see through" plastic Easter eggs
"chocolate" plastic easter eggs
Multi-color spiny balls
Squeaky/squirter frogs and duck
Stuffed ducks/bunnies in varying sizes
Sensory Bin Activites
Explore/ find the ? (sight & touch)
Play with gel clings (touch, motor skills)
Put the ? color clip on the ducks ? (Color and body part recognition, fine motor skills)
Color Matching, Fine Motor Skills, sound, & taste:
Open and close eggs,
Match spiny ball color to egg color and put in.
Some Chocolate eggs have M&M's, shake to figure out which ones have M&M's and eat!
Some frogs squeak others have water in them - squeeze to find out which!
Just for fun / just inevitable: throw sparkly "grass" up in air to simulate "April Showers".
We'll be changing it up a bit each week as we will be doing insects & rainbows, and planting and gardening weeks.
Let me know what you think or if you have any ideas for the weeks coming up.
