Sensory activities are amazing for so many reasons! They are a quick and easy way for children to learn, develop and explore.
When a child is investigating and exploring a sensory bin, they are:
- Working on independent play skills
- Math skills (capacity)
- Imaginary play / dramatic play
- Life skills (pouring, scooping, transferring)
- Fine motor skills
- Tactile learning
- Developing self-control
It’s time to start your sensory bin journey...
Sensory bins don’t have to be messy.
Sensory bins don’t have to cost an arm and a leg to set up.
Sensory bins don’t need to be anything fancy.
It’s all about providing your child with a bin that sparks their imagination and captures their attention. Have fun with it!
