Ocean Sensory Bin
We re-hydrated our fabulous water beads this week for an ocean-themed sensory bin.
It contains water beads and aquarium rocks as a base, and then I threw in some miscellaneous seashells, an aquarium plant, toy fish, a toy frog, and a spiky ball that reminded me of some sort of sea urchin. I also gave him some tongs, a scoop and a jar for scooping and sorting.
He enjoyed squishing the water beads in his fist.
And he attempted some tonging, but it was difficult since the beads are so slippery.
Scooping them into the jar was a bit more his speed.
Later this week, I’ll probably add some water to the bin and let him explore it that way.
