First she used the plastic eggs to scoop up rice and transfer it to the Easter bucket
Next she become smitten with the little chicks.
I talked to her about how baby chicks come from eggs and so she put the chick inside one of the plastic eggs. This is an example of how you can use sensory bins to introduce new concepts to small children.
Next, she used the plastic eggs to transfer rice into each hand which was great for hand-eye coorination
Next, she gathered all the little “baby” eggs as she called them and put them in her bucket, counting them as she went.
For the remainder of the time she used the bin for pretend play. She put the baby chicks “night night”.
Then she needed to make room for the Easter bunny.
This was such a fun sensory bin. We loved the bright and vibrant spring colors. This is a sensory bin that we will be getting a lot of use out of this spring!
