A Farm Sensory Bin is a fun way to explore farm animals in hands on learning. I love how you can integrate so many different sensory types in just a simple bin. You can explore the smooth and rough in this bin.
Before starting the sensory bin we read the book Big Red Barn. Farm is an easy sensory bin to set up and use. This sensory bin works really well with the Free Farm Pack. As with all bins I try and leave them out so they can be played with for a week or more.
I let her explore the the animals in the bin. She loved looking at all the animals.
She make the animals sounds while playing. She had fun making the animals eat the rice and playing with all the pieces.
Another activity that we did with this was some hands on counting. She took the animals and puzzle pieces from the bin to use on the Farm Counting Mat.
This was a fun and messy activity that she just loved.
