Dried Bean Sensory Bin Play

on August 31, 2012

We love our little red tub. We use it for all sorts of fun sensory play activities. It is a great size. We love to fill it with all sorts of fun things. We even filled it with snow two winters ago (no snow in Texas last year) and let K play with his snow indoors.

Last night our bin had dried beans, shells, rocks, and Easter eggs in it.

Dried beans, shells, rocks, Easter eggs, salad tongs, and construction utensils.

It was a good evening play activity. We talked about how shells are made with K. E loved shaking the plastic eggs filled with beans.

Beans have a great texture but are far less messy than sand. Just keep an eye on your little ones with any bin filler and make sure nothing goes up their little noses!
