winter sensory bin

Pin It
it's almost january, so that means we need a new winter sensory bin!  i used several items from the dollar store and hobby lobby (clearance items).  here's what it looks like:

the winter sensory bin is made up of:

blue rice (from our creation story sensory bin)
white/blue/purple pom poms
blue/white/purple pony beads
blue ribbon pieces
large blue sequins
iridescent asterisk sequins (they look like snowflakes)
iridescent star sequins (also left over from the creation sensory bin)
winter erasers
jingle bells
blue plastic table gems (used for table decoration)

Bear drove his dumptrucks and cars through the "sNOw"he even busted out some of our little gardening shovels and dug in the snow. 


and that's about it :)

I'm a new follower. You have a super cute blog. I love some of you preschool ideas, they would be great for both my 3 and 4 year old boys.

I love this winter sensory bin! I've been looking for something different to do for my playgroup in a couple of weeks and I think this may be it! Thanks for sharing on It's Playtime.

What a great sensory bin. I love the winter colors - I was expecting to see a bunch of white and was pleasantly surprised. Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness!

We have a rice table, but I haven't done anything beyond that...thinking I should give it a try.

I am hoping to start using sensory boxes with my 18mo soon. Do you think that is an okay age to start? I thought we might try with coloured rice and add a few other things as we go!
