Sensory Table/Bin Ideas

I am sure we have all experienced a child who is just a "sponge"!  Children are constantly learning.  Our hope is that as they continue to grow they continue to learn.

Sensory learning is something that you can introduce to the youngest of children, infants.  What is sensory learning?  It is learning that utilizes at least one of the 5 senses.  For infants you can easily introduce hearing and seeing.  A great sensory idea for both is creating an I-spy bottle.  They will see all the little parts and can shake it up to hear the items moving. It can be hands-on as well since they can shake the bottles.

As children get older you can introduce new sensory ideas.  Below is a list of thematic sensory table/bin ideas.  These articles are to help get your creative juices flowing.  They also give you tips to keep in mind when creating your own sensory bin and colors you can include.
