Triangle Sensory Bin
This month we are exploring Triangles and what better way to explore this shape than with an easy sensory bin recipe by theme. Last week I shared with you our color of the month sensory bin (yellow) that was fun for my toddler.
We are huge fans of sensory bins and this triangle sensory bin is no different. It took me a little more time to pull this one together because we didn’t have any triangle manipulative to work with. (I’m on the hunt for some cost-effective little triangles.) So I made some triangles out of a piece of white foam board, and colored each one with a marker. Once I had those done the rest of this easy sensory bin was a breeze to put together.
- Medium sized sensory bin
- Different colored triangles
- Pom poms
- Small container
- Clothes pins
- Dump the pom poms and triangles in your medium sensory bin and use your hands to mix
- Clear a small section and sit your small container in the cleared spot
- Clip the clothes pins on the side of the container
We use our sensory bins throughout the day, but it is best for us to put it to use in the morning. (That way mommy can ,are breakfast while they play quitely.) The first morning my toddler just played in it at will with the preschooler with no instructions. Later she separated the triangles from the pom poms by putting them in the small container.Throughout the week we worked on specific colors, creating images, counting, and more. We also ended up adding more containers and a car to this bin by the end of the week. This was a pretty fun sensory bin and we got some great learning out of it.
During the week we use videos and books to work in conjunction with our learning. This week is no different. I picked out a few videos and stories for our shape to use this month and so far this happens to be our favorite video.
