Search for the objects hidden inside the sensory bin!
- Large shallow bin
- Dry sensory base (rainbow rice, dry beans, dry chickpeas, corn kernels)
- Various small items from around the house
- Construction paper
- Dot stickers
First, collect various small items from around the house like a spoon, a comb, a sock, a small animal figurine, a marker, etc. On a sheet of construction paper, draw an image for each item (do the best you can 🙂). Then, place the items inside the sensory bin and pour a dry sensory base on top so the items are covered. Search to find the hidden treasures in the sensory bin! Once you find each treasure, place a dot sticker on its drawing to keep track of which items you’ve found.
