I’ve been wanting to do more sensory play activities with Kaidence during my homeschooling lessons with Kaelyn, but it’s been so busy that I just have not had the chance, but after a crazy day today I just had to find something to keep her entertained while I homeschooled!
I had purchased a few items for the girls Easter baskets this year, so in about 5 minutes I created an awesome Easter Sensory Bin! I say awesome, because Kaidence played with it for about an hour while I got work done with Kaelyn! I can’t believe I haven’t been creating tons of this for her! I just saw how much she enjoyed it and it made me so happy 🙂
Materials Needed to create your Easter Sensory Play Bin:
- 2 Packs of Easter grass
- Plastic Easter eggs
- Chirping chick (this was too cute!)
- Colorful buttons
- Plastic veggies
- Magnifying glass
- Plastic bin
As you can see she was super excited to get into her new Easter Sensory Play Bin, but not as excited when she heard that the little chick actually chirped in her hands! Her face was priceless and I’m so happy I caught it on camera! These are the moments that I will always treasure and why I homeschool my children! I really do not want to miss one second with them, even if they are driving me up the walls two seconds later 🙂
At first she wasn’t too sure about the contents in her bin. If you follow along with all of our gooey science activities, she is the least likely to get dirty! But when she realized that it was just fake grass, she was all into it, pulling it in every direction.
She also used a magnifying glass to look at the grass and all the other items up close! A great way for her to explore some of the texture and color she was playing with.
What other Sensory Play Bin ideas should we do?
