This weeks #TouchItTuesday is a Grocery Shopping sensory bin ! Teaching your child to count money while playing is a great learning opportunity.
What you’ll need:
Start by adding your play money to the bottom of your bin. Add a basket with food. Leave the money sorting container outside of the bin to allow your child to put it back into the container if they choose to.
Teach your child what each bill and coin is and how much it’s worth.
Ask your child to sort the money by $1’s, $5’s, etc.
Ask your child to sort the play food by color
Ask your child to sort the play food in their bin into categories. Example fruits, vegetables, etc.
We hope your child has a ton of fun with this sensory play bin. Come back next week for a new bin idea.
