Do you have a little farmer or animal lover? This farm sensory bin is so much for the little ones. They get to play pretend with the ducks and pretend to care and feed them as well.
Sensory bins are great for keeping little ones busy while the older children do lessons. When my kiddo was small he could play with these bins for hours! If you haven’t tried them yet, now might be a good time to give a go!
You will need:
-Small shallow pan
cups , bowls, other items for filling and emptying
I found both my 9×12 baking pan and mini hay bale at my local dollar store. You can use any shallow bin you have on hand for your sensory bin.
Scatter hay in the bottom of your bin.
Add farm rubber ducks.
-Add a little cup of beans or other small items for dramatic play- feeding time!
-While it is fun to just let them play and explore there are severa
-Talk about caring for farm animals and other things you might see on a farm.
-Add magnet letters to your bin, farm flashcards, books, or other farm themed items to extend the playtime.
I like to add some themed books alongside the sensory bins I offer for play, here are a few farm ones we enjoy
