If your child loves sensory play, try this simple spring sensory bin. This activity helps develop fine motor skills and the pincer grasp.
This spring sensory bin combines flower arranging with spring “planting” practice. The best part is, you only need 5 things to set up this invitation to play.
spring Sensory Bin Supplies:
- Black Beans
- Various Planters or Buckets
- Scoops or Measuring Cups/Spoons (Wooden Scoops)
- Artificial Flowers (We picked ours up at Dollar Tree)
- Wire Cutters to cut the flowers apart (adult use only)
Let your child play (with adult supervision.)
This spring sensory bin activity develops fine motor skills as they scoop and pour the beans into the planters. The sensory experience for younger ones is especially gratifying.
(These are Trofast bins in the Flisat table from IKEA.)
Additionally, arranging the flowers into the dried beans helps develop the pincer grasp. Miss 2 loved this activity and she’s ready to start planting seeds for our garden.
As you can see, these are fun to display in a play kitchen or around your play areas. Please let us know how you like this activity!
