We love sensory bins at our house! It’s such a great way to engage the senses, allow children be imaginative, gives them freedom to explore new materials, and it’s an overall fun activity! Today I’m sharing with you some super sensory bins for spring and summer!
Why are sensory bins important? Using sensory bins is a type of play that is very beneficial for children. Starting at birth, babies begin to explore the world around them using their five senses. As children grow, their senses are their most familiar and most basic way to explore and process new information. Sensory play enhances learning through hands-on activities that stimulate the child’s senses. This is a great way for children to explore the world they live in! They are beneficial for all children, but especially helpful for kids with SPD (sensory processing disorder), autism, FASD (fetal alcohol syndrome), and ADD. We’ve been creating sensory bins for many years and my kids still love them!
