BUTTERFLY HABITAT SENSORY BIN
I love looking back at this sensory bin – it was the one we did the very first day daycare opened! I was so scared something would go wrong, or that I’d be finding beans around the room for weeks afterwards. But nothing went wrong, the kids loved it and it requested multiple times afterwards.
Here’s our butterfly habitat sensory bin!
I went a little bit all out with this one – but it’s still on the simpler side for prep.
- White beans
- Fake grass (mine are the square ones Dollarama releases with their summer line)
- Fake flowers pulled off their stems (I thrifted mine for super cheap)
I first put down the lentils and beans. I would only do one or the other if you don’t enjoy sorting beans out of lentils for an hour afterwards. Then I shook the fake grass into the beans/lentils, added the flowers and lastly the butterflies.
