Easter Sensory Bin

The girls have had loads of fun with this easter sensory bin and it took very little setting up.

I just used some lentils and some green mung beans to make a very rough egg shape. Then I laid out a bowl of all their Easter bit and pieces. There are fluffy chicks and bunnies and plastic eggs.

It didn’t take long for them to find it after school and get stuck in.

Sometimes I provide two sensory bins for the twins but sometimes I think it is good for them to share. They don’t always play at the same time anyway. I loved seeing how they worked together with this one.

Of course there were a few arguments – but that is part of the learning process.

The girls explored putting the different things inside the eggs. Of course we had to talk about how bunnies don’t hatch out of eggs – only chicks.

They were delighted when they discovered that the lentils make a rattling sound when you put them in an egg.

They tried a few different things to see how they sounded inside the plastic eggs.

The twins have watched some chicks hatch at nursery and they enjoyed playing with the fluffy chicks and recreating how they held them.

After a while their play became more imaginative and they acted out scenes with the little chicks.

Each of the chicks was given a name.

This has provided the girls with so much fun and was really cheap and simple to put together.
