Sensory bins are a low-cost way to create fun yet challenging activities for your child. These activities work on fine motor skills, build language, and problem solving. All you need is a container and whatever is laying around your house!
For this activity, I repurposed an empty container into a “bean bottle” for my son. In its former life, the container was used for protein powder so it already came with a scoop! We’d practice scooping the beans out of the bean bottle and then emptied it into the bin. When the bean bottle was empty, we’d work on scooping the beans back into the bottle.
Non-perishables in your kitchen that make great sensory material:
-dry beans -dry pasta -uncooked rice -uncooked oats -Sea salt -Flour
