This farmyard sensory bin was really easy to put together as we just used the base from our spring garden sensory bin and added our wooden farm animals and our toilet roll tube farm animals that we made last summer!

What you need:
Green shredded paper
I used a roasting tray, but you can use any kind of tray you can find.
Use coco pops, for mud, in one half of your tray and shredded paper, for a grass field, in the other half of your tray. Add you selection of animals and you are ready to go!
Evie decided, quite rightly, that you can't have a farm without a barn! So she disappeared off upstairs to find our Fisher Price farm yard to add to the play invitation.
This bin was great for Evie and Jenson who love imaginative play with toys. They acted out storys, sang songs and used additional resources that they found to enhance their play.
Elsie, on the other hand, was much happier to use the toilet roll animals to scoop and empty the bin (definitely something to remember for future sensory bins.) We did successfully encourage Elsie to use animal names rather than 'baa baa' 'moo moo' etc! So, at least, we got something out of it! And I am sure as the week passes she will imitate the play she sees with Jenson and Evie
Why not try...
Pin for later...
