I love sensory play, and I love spring! Here's an easy way to combine the two! Open ended play is a great way to keep toddlers occupied in the cooler Spring days indoors. It's a great way to encourage language skills, fine motor and more! Plus, the cute!
I had fun with this bright and playful bin this time around. I kept it simple and focused on imaginary play. Henry has started to really enjoying pretending with animals, so this bin is perfect for him. While I HATE the messy Easter grass, I'm willing to deal with it for a little while longer. My vacuum just might be getting a little extra use.
Our sensory bin includes:
The felt and paper bunnies and paper baskets were all purchased at a craft store. I've had those eggs for so long I have no clue where they are from. The flower pots were borrowed from our Montessori Inspired Cup and Ball Sorters.
So far, Henry has loved just playing with the bin! Of course he immediately dumped it out and got the grass everywhere. But, it kept him busy for a good 30 minutes -- so I call that a win!
Did you make a spring inspired sensory bin? Anyone else hate that grass as much as I do?
