Summer is a great season for sensory play experiences. Water tables, gardening, and playing at the beach all provide children with valuable opportunities for sensory play. But what about those stormy summer days spent inside? Create a fun beach themed sensory bin to bring the summer indoors.
In this bin the sand provides a fun foundation, and with the addition of water becomes a building material. Coloured threads mimic seaweed, and rounded beach glass, driftwood and seashells provide interesting textures and colours to explore. The best part? Most of these materials can be collected on your next trip to the beach.
