Preschool Vegetable Garden Sensory Bin

When I was a preschool teacher I always enjoyed creating sensory bins to place outdoors during the Summer months. The children always loved sensory play. I think the fact sensory is different and not just an every day toy car or a book really attracts a child’s attention. Today we have a fantastic Vegetable Garden Sensory Bin for the kids to enjoy. It’s bright and colourful to get the kids attention, can be a great learning opportunity and is great for the senses. Enjoy.
