Sometimes sensory play needs to be simple! Today’s St, Patrick’s Day sensory activity is just that… no ingredients to mix, no slimy mess, and no food coloring required to create this fun Green & Gold sensory bin.
The noise of the coins and peas rumbling together is really fun! After awhile of running our fingers through the bin, the kid’s found the coins and put them in a pile. Once they were all found we counted them and put them in our bins to play again. My daughter closed her eyes and used her fingers to feel around in the bin and find the coins (way to work on her sense of touch!)
