We had so much fun at garden storytime last week! We had even more fun digging in our “garden” for this week’s sensory activity.

 

Creating this sensory activity was incredibly simple and can be done with simple items from around the house or classroom. Our main ingredient was black beans; ACME had an incredible sale - buy one get two free! Then, we added in our bugs - specifically, this set from Oriental Trading: https://www.orientaltrading.com/small-bugs-a2-16_1069.fltr 

 

Several years ago, we hosted a lua and had a large number of leis left over. These were great to cut and use as the flowers. Additionally, we used the Ellison to cut more shapes, including bugs and flowers in various colors from foam. After that, we grabbed some shovels and went to town! Enjoy making and playing with your sensory bin!
