I have a busy 4yr old. She hardly sits still and always wants to be doing something. She often interrupts when I am helping one of the other kids during our school day. She is bored and wants something to do to feel like one of the big kids. One way to keep her busy is sensory bins.
This easy pumpkin sensory bin keeps her and her brother busy. She has lots of fun and it is working out those fine motor skills. I had her use tweezers to pick up each item and sort them into 2 different pumpkin containers. Here is a list of things I used to make this bin.
- Plastic bin or some other container
- Big bag of rice. You can also use beans or noodles.
- Pumpkin candy
- Candy corn
- Preschool tweezers (link below)
- 2 Pumpkin treat containers
