Spring Sensory Water Bin
and foam tulip crafting sheets to the water bin and a handful of foam Spring stickers. When these foam sheets and stickers get wet, they can stick to the foam and plastic plates very easily. They can be removed and placed again and again without difficulty.
Placing these foam stickers on the large foam sheets is a great way to practice tip to tip grasp and fine motor skills. baby Girl had a hard time understanding that the sticker’s backs would not peel off once they were wet, but she got the hang of just placing the foam shapes in different places once I showed her.
Scooping up the floating shapes from the scented water was so much fun and a great way to practice visual scanning and eye-hand coordination, too. We didn’t add any scoops to this activity, but a few kitchen utensils like large spoons or an ice cream scoop would be a fun way to further extend this sensory water bin.
Baby Girl just enjoyed getting her hands in the water and grabbing up the shapes. Sensory play at it’s finest!
to sort and play with the foam stickers. The wet stickers stuck nicely to the plastic plates, too.
