Apples Sensory Bin
Fall Sensory Play
Hands On Play With Water Beads
Fall is an amazing time to explore and create with apples! There are so many types of play and learning that go along with apples. You can teach numbers, letters, science and more. Apples make for great sensory play in bins or with paint!Here’s our latest creation, a water beads and apples sensory bin !
Water Beads are super fun and they are red and round like apples too!
For this apples sensory bin set up, I used red water beads and a bag of acrylic apples and leaves from the craft store. I added a silicone apple tray from the dollar store as well as some of our own measuring cups and pie plate! Such an easy set up as long as you start plumping the water beads a few hours before!
The first thing he went for was the scoop to fill the pie plate. No container or pie plate should be empty, right?! Pretty funny, when the water beads started to bounce everywhere. Good idea to put everything in the larger tub because clearly making them bounce is way too much fun to do over and over again!
I think he liked the way they felt on his hands and then he started to find the apples. He kept saying, I have wet apples!
He set about finding all the red and green apples and filling various containers with the apples and leaves. Of course, we had to make apple soup! Lots of pretend taste testing until it had just the right amount of apples and leaves to be tasty!
This apples sensory bin with water beads was so much fun for us to share together!
