What do you do when you do not live near the ocean or beach? You make some Ocean and Beach Sensory Bins for your children to learn, play, and explore. Each of these sensory bins contains some element of either the ocean or beach while some contain both! Sensory bins are a great way to expose children to new topics without being to technical or seem like you are teaching.
Here’s a basic supply list for Sensory Bins:
Plastic bin or tray to house your items
Sensory material- sand, water, jello, or slime
Beach themed items-crabs, seagulls, shells,etc.
Once you know which theme you want to create then you can choose on of the sensory bins listed below. Gather all you items without your child knowing and maybe even throw in a Beach book or Ocean book or two for even more learning fun!
