Spring is FINALLY in the air! To help get us in the spirit I made up a Spring Sensory Bin using some decorative grass, and various other things to help build some indoor spring!
Here's everything we used:
Decorative grass (not shown below)
Black beans (not shown below)
Empty soap container (not shown below)
My daughter loves a hunt so I thought how about a mini hunt in a bin?! I added flower 'parts' to the bin by using green pipe cleaners to act as the flower stem and cut out foam in the shape of flowers. I also added a bunny also cut from foam and things like googly eyes and pom poms so that my daughter could 'put together' her bunny.
I added a few pieces and then would add some grass and continued layering.
Beginning her 'hunt!'
Building the flower...
Building the bunny....
After our flowers were all put together we used an old soap container for our vase and added our flowers and bunny to it. I also had some black beans from our Halloween Garden and used the beans as 'soil' for our flowers. This part is completely optional and if interested in doing this you do not have to put in a 'vase' at all but just glue your flowers and bunny to construction paper.
Since our soap container had a bit of glue on the front from the label we added our bunny to the front of the vase and it stuck perfectly!
So now we have a bit of spring indoors!
My daughter LOVED the decorative grass and I was feeling brave this day and let her have some fun throwing the grass around. Believe it or not it was a super easy clean up! She even helped, happily! I would not recommend letting your child do this with the grass if you have pets as I'm sure ingesting this would be bad for them.
Sorry for the blurry shots, so much moving and throwing!
