Rainbow Water Beads
Water beads. Need I say more?! These little guys supply so. much. entertainment. And I love them! Of course LG always ends up squishing them to bits, but I guess that’s fine motors practice, right? Ha! This bin gives her hours of open-ended fun and it’s one of our absolute favorites! LG is pretty good at keep the mess inside the bin, but I usually place a plastic table cloth underneath just in case! I always grab them for about $1 while grocery shopping! You can find these water beads HERE and similar scoopers HERE!
Alphabet Matching Sensory Bin
For this activity, LG will choose letter stickers from the sensory bin to match to their corresponding letter on the sheet of paper. (Want to use this with older kiddos? Write lowercase letters on the paper and have kiddos match the uppercase stickers to them!) The second activity is a simple magnet hunt in the beans with the magnet wand!
This is such a fun way to practice patterns! Toss the shamrock pieces into your sensory bin and have your little one search for the correct pieces to repeat or extend the patterns! You can find this pattern activity by CLICKING HERE!
St. Patrick’s Day Sticker Sort
We sure love puffy stickers around here, can you tell?? These adorable St. Patrick’s Day themed puffy stickers were 40% this year at Hobby Lobby! For her first activity, LG will choose stickers from the white bean bin and sort accordingly. For the second activity, LG will choose pieces to match on their matching mat or puzzle!
