I’ve mentioned before that we will be homeschooling the kids. Samantha is at that preschool stage. I’ve been looking up fun ways to introduce school to her and sensory bins have been catching my eye. Especially book themed sensory bins. They are a great way to get kids involved with learning and encourage creativity. Plus it gives them a free pass to (somewhat) make a mess lol. I stumbled across THIS ONE on pinterest the other day and fell in love with the idea. I wanted to make my own personalized version and the above inspiration board is what I came up with. I can’t wait to show Samantha! I also can’t wait to incorporate other book themed sensory bins too.
Fill plastic bin with the black gravel (the night sky), place all the pieces in desired order (I’d probably do it in the order the books introduces each object), When you give the bin to your child read the book first or have your child go through the book locating each object as you read. Then let your child play as long as their little hearts desire =) Have fun!
