Luckily the sensory bin was probably the greatest success of all the activities. They both loved playing with it, and asked for it several times.
I will save all the other details of our first week of tot-school for a different post, I will hopefully have that up soon.
For now I will just share our first sensory bin. I have decided to do one per month, and we will have one theme per month instead of trying to do a theme to go along with each letter of the week. We are starting with a pond theme.
In the Bin:
Blue dyed rice
Felt lily pads
Frogs and Turtles from Safari Frogs and Turtles Toob (bought from Amazon)
Dragonflies from Animal Planet Bugs in a Tube (bought at Toys R Us)
Fish from Circo Underwater Life Collection Tube (bought at Target)
Snail aquarium decoration I had because many years ago it lived in a hermit crab tank
Cards from the Pond Preschool Pack at Homeschool Creations
The next pictures are from a different day. I had found these M&M cups at Walmart and thought they would be great for sorting activities and such. So I gave them each a cup and a plastic spoon and they scooped the rice into the cups.
