When we first started sensory, we only had a bowl to use. We’ve since used something much bigger, but it shows that you can do this even with limited resources and the kids still love it.
The kids are gathered around the Pinto beans here. They have measuring cups and bottles to dump, pour, and measure.
In this exercise each child is given a jar and several beans to see if they can drop it from their nose and make it into the jar. Not only do they get to hear the pink, pink, pink sound as they drop but they get to work on their aim.
This is our Cheerio bowl.
There are measuring cups and containers but also string for the kids to lace. All children enjoy the cheerio bowl.
