I started with a base of Easter paper grass stuff and a few cotton balls.
I pulled the cotton balls apart slightly to fluff them up a bit.
Gently pull your cotton ball apart until it looks like a fluffy cloud.
Next add a handful of planes and balloons- or a toob (In the Sky).
And you have a neat sensory bin for kids that incorporates fun with their senses. The paper Easter grass and the cotton ball clouds offer different textures to feel. The paper grass engages the sense of hearing as it crinkles when touched. The colorful blue base engages the sense of sight with a visually appealing color. The planes open the doors to imaginative play.
Roo liked this sensory bin. He was amazed at the planes inside and he caught on quickly that the bin was the sky. He excitedly showed me all of the clouds, several planes and the paper grass which he thought was pretty neat stuff. After about an hour of playing planes he smiled and picked out a few dudes and told me it was bubble bath time! The In the Sky Sensory Bin can double as a bubble bath sensory bin in the imagination of a child.
Thanks for reading! I would love to hear about your favorite sensory bin ideas.
