Looking for a great activity to keep your hooligans entertained during the deep-freeze we’re having? Set up a polar sensory bin for the kids to play with and explore. It’s a great addition to a preschool winter unit.
You can make this polar sensory bin with just a few odds and ends from the craft room and the toy box. Raid your Christmas decorations for bits and pieces too!
Your kids will spend hours scooping, sifting, sorting and playing with the contents in the bin, and it’s a great way to teach them about polar animals too.
Pop over to CBC Parents to see how I pulled this winter sensory bin together for my hooligans. You and your children will have a great time building your bin, and it will provide them with hours of open-ended, sensory play.
