I went for rabbits, pastels, and springtime this month. I was going to do Easter grass for the base, but after using it for a couple other things recently, I decided against it. Rice is easier to clean up, in my opinion. Static drives me crazy. Here's a better look at what's inside the bin.
*base- dyed green rice for dumping, pouring and scooping
* wooden eggs spelling out Easter for identifying colors and letters and stacking (Target $2.50)
* tin container for dumping, pouring and scooping (Target $1)
* rabbit finger puppet for pretend play (came with a book we got as a gift)
* silicone muffin cups for scooping, dumping, pouring and pretend play (Michaels, assortment)
* pinwheel for a science kind of aspect (Target $2.50)
* wind up rabbit for pretend play (Walmart $1)
* rubber duck hatching from an Easter egg for pretend play(Target, 2 pack $1)
* rubber rabbit for pretend play (Walmart, 2 pack $1)
* squishy rabbit ball for pretend play and throwing (Target $1)
* feathers for counting (Michaels, assortment)
* plastic nesting eggs for opening and closing, scooping, dumping, pouring, and color matching
* plastic bunny egg for opening and closing, scooping, dumping, and pouring (Walmart .50)
* large pastel pom poms for sorting and counting (Michaels, assortment)
This bin appeals to Boogie's sense of sight, touch, and sound.
There are a variety of textures to explore through his sense of touch- lots of plastic, a food item (rice), soft things (pom poms, finger puppet), rubber (rabbit and duck), metal (tin container), some natural items (wood letter eggs and feathers), silicone (muffin cups), and the weird squishy rabbit that I don't know what it is made out of.
You can see Boogie's other sensory bins on my sensory bin page.
We are also celebrating Easter with DIY Resurrection eggs and activities, and a hungry bunny game on our Easter trays. Boogie also enjoyed a bunny muffin tin meal.
Linking up to these great parties!
