Easy Sensory Play: Shell and Rice Sensory Bin

Sensory play is always important to have. On some of the long summer days that get a little too hot to be outside. I want to have something inside for my girls to do.

We do sensory bins just for that. This is simple and easy to put together. It also makes a great beach themed activity.

One of our favorite activities is the scoop and poor. And it is fun because you can change up the different shells to see how much rice you get. It is a great way to work in some fine motor while you hold the small shells.

Another fun activity that we did was to fill the big shells with rice by using the smaller shells. We counting how many shells it took. It was fun to see the differences in the sizes of shells and how many scoops it would be.
