Hands -On Book Play
Simple Pirate Rice Sensory Bin and Book Play
This was a completely spontaneous sensory bin originally created by my preschool son as part our Rice Sensory Bin Challenge Blog Hop (a must read)! As our child led rice sensory bin unfolded, he was loving the pirate theme and crafted this fun bin to play with together. So simple and inexpensive. You really don’t need fancy materials or toys for a treasure hunt. Your child has all the fun in his imagination already. I find adding a book to be a fun way to expand and extend the play. Pirate hat optional but way cool!

We read along with the book which sends pirates hunting for the alphabet letters for their captain. We are working on lower case letters, so it was great practice for him to see the upper case letters and then have to find the lower case letters to match! Of course there was lots of digging, counting coins, and finding buried treasure along the way!
We always enjoy reading our pirate books together and this sensory bin made it just a little bit more exciting! Simple additions from the dollar store like necklaces, foam puzzles, gems (vase filler) and
