Enjoy rhyming sensory play with our Dr. Seuss sensory bin inspired by classic Dr. Seuss books including The Cat In The Hat, Hop on Pop, and Green Eggs and Ham. A sensory bin is a wonderful way to combine literacy with play for a truly joyful early childhood learning experience. Sensory filled activities are magical for young kids and can really bring books to life.
Dr. Seuss Sensory Bin for The Cat In The Hat
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Did you know that Dr. Seuss lived right here in Springfield, Massachusetts when he was born! Hooray for us, since that’s where we live and we have a beautiful sculpture garden at the Springfield Museums complete with Horton, Lorax, Yertle and so many more! The museum and the sculpture garden is a must visit when it’s warm again! Let’s celebrate with a Dr. Seuss sensory bin and practice rhyming words too! Liam has been big into rhyming anything and everything and always points out how words rhyme in the books!
Dr. Seuss Sensory Bin Invitation to Read & Rhyme
This Dr. Seuss sensory bin was a natural option to pair with these fun books! We have been enjoying The Cat In The Hat, Hop On Pop, and Green Eggs and Ham! Of course, I love occasions that call for colored rice, so I whipped up some red rice! I had to make it look like the awesome hat worn by the cat! I wrote rhyming words for -at, -op, and -am on index cards, separating them by color. We are currently working on sounding out letters. I set out three containers for sorting and added some sparkly pompoms and a scoop for sensory bin play.
Close Up of Dr. Seuss Sensory Bin and Rhyming Words
Make sure to sit down and read your favorite Dr. Seuss books together!
I had Liam sort the colors. Since we are still working on sounding out letters, this was an activity for us to work on together. We spelled the words, sounded out the letters and made rhymes together! You can choose to keep this Seuss sensory bin even simpler and leave out the words and just enjoy the books with it!
