Fun sensory bins that children will learn from do not need to be complicated, time-consuming and expensive. We have all seen the beautiful Pinterest and Instagram worthy creations out there with gorgeous toys and hand-dyed sensory materials. I would love to play in those bins myself but as a teacher with a limited personal budget and no money from the school to buy sensory bin materials I need to find simple, cheap ideas that I do not need to spend a whole night creating.
I love sensory bins because they incorporate different skills such as fine-motor, social, communication, co-operation, literacy and math.
I hope that you have found an idea you can use in your classroom!
Let me know in the comments if you have other easy ideas to share!
Thank you for reading,
