Christmas Lights Water Bead Sensory Bin

At our house, we always have some kind of sensory bin. I find them relaxing for my girls after school or other stressful times. This sensory bin was tons of fun. It is a water bead sensory bin and those are among some of our favorites.

We took the lights we used for hands-on activities last year: Christmas Light Sensory Bin and Sorting Christmas Lights.

The small lights are great for fine motor activities. They are brightly colored and fun to look for. The small size is great for working on pincher grasp with kids.

One thing I always like about sensory bins is that these activities are ones that kids do on their one for the most part. This is a fun free play time they can just enjoy. I also enjoy playing in the bins with them.

We read the book The Night the Lights Went Out on Christmas. It is about a street that gets competative with the Christmas lights dislays and what happens when the lights go out.

What you need for these activities: ceramic Christmas tree bulb, clear large water beads, cups and clear water beads.

My girls just love to run their hands through the sensory bin. The scoop up and pour the beads from their hands. It is loads of fun to have the hard lights and smooth beads for textures to play in. This is also a time for them to figure out just what I have put in the bin.

Another favorite in our sensory bins is the scoop and pour. It is always fun because every bin is different and has different reactions and sounds.
