I often use sensory boxes with the children at my learning house. Sensory boxes are fun and a wonderful tool for increasing a child’s communication! Using sensory boxes, you can teach your child new vocabulary, how to request items, names items and identify items receptively.
Here are some of my favorite sensory bins!
This space activity includes moon sand, mini astronauts and glow-in-the-dark sand!
2. Spring chicks sensory bin from Special Learning House.
The chicks are adorable! Have your child pick them up with large plastic tweezers and put them in another container to help build your child’s fine motor skills.
This is such a creative way to present a sensory activity and to build fine motor skills.
This insect sensory bin is fabulous!
This is such a fun water play idea!
What a fun way to celebrate sensory play – with dried beans hot chocolate and cottonball marshmallows!
