Here at Love Bug Boutique we know how important it is for all baby bosses to learn and improve their cognitive development. Every week we will be sharing a new themed sensory bin. Sensory bins are a great way for your child to use their senses while playing to build nerve connections in their brain, strengthen their motor skills, and encourage scientific thinking.
Spring is in full bloom and we have a sensory bin that is sure to make your child feel as if they’re running through a garden.
What you’ll need:
-Bin - we used a dish pan from dollar tree
-Pebbles- sand, dirt, marbles, etc. can be a good substitute.
Setting up your bin:
Empty your pebbles into your bin and wash any debris that may be on them.
Add your planting pots.
Cut and spread your flowers through out the bin.
Place your butterflies in between the flowers.
This spring garden sensory bin incorporates touch and sight from the different textures and colors of the pebbles, flowers, and butterflies.
Their hearing sense is stimulated from the pebbles hitting each other as your child plays through the bin.
Want to arouse the last two senses?
Feel free to add Cheerios to your bin instead of pebbles. Your child can explore the scent and taste of the cereal as they play.
This Butterfly Garden sensory bin is sure to be a hit with your child!
Come back next week to check out our next #touchittuesday sensory bin.
