Green Things Easy Sensory Bin Recipes

Green Things Sensory Bin

Omgoodness! I’m super excited to share this easy sensory bin recipe by theme with you guys. Why am I excited you ask? Simple, because I did not put this together. As a matter of fact I don’t think I would have even thought this up, and I put together a lot of sensory bins. So I don’t really know how to go about talking about this one so let’s start here.

For the month of March the color that we are exploring is Green. We love green right now, in all shades. So last week while working on our Calendar Time wall in the color section my toddler told me she was making a green bin that day. I looked at this kid and said “Well have at it.”

She grabbed our bucket of dinosaurs, some shrubbery, a green bowl and spoon. She asked me to grab the beans, I grabbed the colored beans and that made her cry. After we calmed down the melt down I grabbed the black beans.

I poured the beans in our medium sized sensory bin and she then picked out all he green dinosaurs from her bucket, added the green shrubbery.

Now she thinks her sensory bin is ready. She starts to playing and in walks the preschooler. She spots the bin and immediately starts to play. I called that kid over and told her she couldn’t play until she did her calendar time. Once calendar time for her was over we added some little ikea cups and a yellow spoon. Why yellow? “Because yellow is just green with the green taken out”

The girls loved this sensory bin and my toddler was really proud of her bin. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next. Learning 2 Walk and I was just talking about how fascinating it is to see how their brains work.

Well guys I got a lot of crap to deal with. So I will get back to you all next week Monday for some more of my toddler activities.
