Sensory bins are so much fun.

And the kids love them, too!

Here’s the thing about sensory bins. They are messy. It’s just the way of things. BUT, that is part of the fun of them. Did you know that the messier kids are when playing, the bigger their brain will be? It’s true, I read it on google. We all know that the internet never lies.

Now that we got that messy disclaimer out of the way, let’s jump in to our sensory bin. Figuratively, of course.

You can use whatever you have around the house, but these are the neat things I used:

Steel Cut Oats (because they are my cheapest food item, true story)

Beads (these are great and you can’t beat this price!!)

Pony Beads Multi Color 9mm 1000 Pcs in Bag

Animal Crackers

And…a big bucket.

Then you just put the beads and the oats together. Then comes the fun part. I hid all the little animal crackers in the conglomeration of beads and oats.

When it came time for the fun, we started out by reading the story of Noah’s Ark in the Jesus Storybook Bible. Then, we talked about all the different animals.

After discussing the story, I let my little ones over to the sensory bin and told them to have at it. I also told them that there were little animals hidden in the bins and they could eat them once they found them.

Once the first one was found, I added that before they were consumed, my little one had to tell me what kind of animal it was.

We had so much fun with this! Not only was it a great way to reinforce Noah’s Ark in teaching about all the animals that God saved, but it was a great way to teach sharing. Inevitably, Gracie (2.5 years) would find more than Benjamin (14 months) and she would take a bite and then give the rest to her brother.

I love using craft to teach my kids about the Bible. If you do too, check out this blog hop for the Jesus Storybook Bible. It is so much fun!
