Spring is finally in sight! It's just around the corner, so I thought I would kick od the season with a simple, but pretty, spring garden sensory bin...

You will need:
Coco Pops (or similar cereal)
Green shredded paper
I used a roasting tray, you can use any kind of box.
Put a layer of coco pops in the bottom of your tray, cover half with the green shredded paper and top with your craft flowers. Add the buckets and you are ready to play.
Elsie loved this sensory bin! As much as she loved it because she could eat it she also loved filling the buckets and emptying them again! She also enjoyed hiding the flowers under the 'mud' and searching for them again.
I also found that she has started 'counting' with the flowers. OK so her counting consists of '2, 2, 2, 3' but she has gained an understanding of numbers and it is something we can work on now as our activity plan goes on.
Jenson asked if he could have some sticks and glue to make his flowers 'grow' they look great in our sensory bin (and I kinda wish I had thought of it!)
Pin for later...
