This year during our homeschool preschool and pre-kindergarten, I thought I would try out some sensory bins. I make no guarantees that I will do one each week or that I will do them all year for two reasons. One I do not know if the girls will like them. Two I do not know if I will like doing them. 🙂
During the sixth week, we worked on learning about the letter “F.” To find items for our Letter F Sensory Bin I raided the girls’ toys, my craft supplies, and our school supplies.
Letter F Sensory Bin was not a messy bin per se. But I still had to sweep feathers off the floor. 🙁
Letter F Sensory Bin
- Plastic bin with lid
- Bag of assorted feathers
- Plastic flamingo
- Fabric or plastic flowers (assorted button shapes from Hobby Lobby)
- Plastic fox
- Rubber or plastic fish
- Plastic letter F’s capital and lowercase
- Plastic frogs
- Cardboard or plastic four
- Plastic flies
- Plastic frilled-neck lizard
- Wood or plastic fire truck (Dollar Tree toy set)
- Plastic ferret
- Cardboard or plastic five
- Plastic firemen (Dollar Tree toy set)
- Fine motor tool set
- Pour enough feathers to cover the bottom.
- Add in the plastic toys, letters and numbers.
- Give plastic fine motor tool set to your child to use while exploring the bin.
The girls loved exploring their Letter F Sensory Bin and feathers got everywhere. They used their hands to dig around and find the toys, the fine motor tool set to scoop, grab, and pinch up each item. They also counted the different kinds of items, counted the total number of items in the bin, and tried stacking the items.
The first time the girls started exploring their letter “F” sensory bin, I read Firefighters A to Z from our Tot School Letter F Books list. During the rest of the week, we listen to music genres or instruments that begin with the letter “F”.
