Loose Parts in Sensory Bins
We used cotton batting left, cotton balls, our soda dough snowmen, bits of tinsel, and some glass gems. A few clothes pins were added for fine motor exploring, too. This was a fun little world for Baby Girl with loose parts. All those little pieces are fun to explore and examine. Language is developed. As your child plays, ask her questions. “What color is that?” “What can we do with this?” What is this called?” Their imagination will blossom and learning is encouraged. You can add colors, scents, textures to sensory bins with little loose parts pieces.
