Last year about this time we had a Button Sensory Bin. We loved it. Now we have a slight take on part of it with an ABC Sensory Bin.
We have been using these buttons and letter tiles forever. It was just after Halloween my youngest walks up with the alphabet buttons, bin, rice and the Appletters. She asked if it would be okay to play. I said sure. She then put the bin together and asked for the last few items.
She played with this bin for over a week. She loves it. She likes matching tiles to buttons. She would also gather all button and tiles in the cup and then name the letters as she pulled them out.
A second activity we did with this was match up the letters to the ABCs on the page. I used the ABC Dot Marker Upper case for this. I printed all the pages on one page.
I also had my youngest pull out the letters in her name. It was great for looking for letters and learning name. Then putting the letters in order.
Sensory bins are fun and some times it is fun just exploring what is in the bin and not worrying about anything else.
