This Week’s Virtual Book Club Book
Farm Sensory Bin
Is it getting colder outside? Staying inside can make everyone stir crazy but this fun farm sensory bin will keep little ones busy so you can enjoy a cup of coffee or your favorite book. Putting it together is easy but they may make a bit of a mess with the hay. I swept it up off of our hard wood floors easily after letting my youngest child play.
- Bowl or bin
- Straw (I bought a small bale at the craft store as fall décor)
- Small plastic farm animals
- Wooden craft sticks (popsicle sticks)
- White Paint (optional)
The wooden craft sticks will act as the farm fences in the sensory bin. If you’re going to paint them white do that first and set up the rest of the bin as the paint dries.
Fill a bowl with straw and add the plastic animals. Once the popsicle sticks are dry break some in half for the fence posts. The rest can be used to make enclosures for the animals, for stirring the hay, or for searching for the animals in the hay. Have fun!
