Sensory bins are such a fun way to learn and play. This apple tree sensory bin is perfect for talking about colors while exploring nature. We worked on building our own apple tree with pieces from nature.
Apple Sensory Bin Idea:
We started with a low tray and went on a walk around the yard, collecting sticks and little leaves. Snapping the twigs was such a fun activity for my Little Guy (age 5). That satisfying *snap* of the sticks was maybe his favorite part of our sensory bin play!
I gathered the red pieces from our Checkers set and added them to the tray. This sensory bin is as simple to set up as it is fun!
We worked on building an apple tree with the twigs. We added the leaves and apples all around the tree. Be sure to count the apples and “pick” some from the tree to sneak some math in your play!
Finish off your apple sensory bin with a snack of apple slices. That sounds like the perfect way to spend an afternoon with the kids!
