Why make A Sensory Bin?

We love sensory bins! From an early age, I have used sensory bins with my son as a way for him to engage in play. Sensory bins present so many opportunities for emotional growth and early learning development. The possibilities are endless from a simple bin of rice or beans and scoops to a more elaborate themed bin for a holiday or a specific unit on dinosaurs. Sensory play ranges from general scooping and dumping to highly imaginative role playing. Sensory bins have proven to be awesome for developing language skills, fine motor skills, and social skills. There are many ways to include early learning concepts such as literacy, mathematics and science into your bins. I encourage you to read my ALL ABOUT SENSORY BINS: 5 Things You Need To Know!
