Looking for ways to help your preschooler explore their world?
Toddlers are natural explorers and love learning about the world around them.
Sensory bins like this construction bean box are a great way to encourage learning and will keep your little ones engaged while developing new skills.
They are super easy to make and budget friendly too.
Don’t be afraid to let your little ones get messy!
Construction Bean Box
I picked up the plastic bin with lid for just under eight dollars and filled it with:
*split green beans
*bag of decorative stones.
I also purchased some new construction vehicles to create our “dumping and pouring” sensory bin.
Two toddlers can play comfortably with the size of this bin and when play is over the bin slides under the bed for perfect storage.
I also found this great Math manipulative over at the measured mom (And it’s free too!!) which we used to extend our play. We used wooden blocks but you could use play dough or buttons.
Do your kids enjoy sensory tubs? What would you add to our Construction Bean Box? I would love it if you added your ideas down in the comments below.
