Eyeball Sensory Bin

Halloween has so many different things you can explore. This Eye Ball Sensory Bin was lots of fun to explore different weights. There were different eyeballs that were very light to hold and the rock was very heavy compared to the erasers. This was also great to look at the shapes of the eyes ball and what was different about them.

We read the book Scary, Scary Halloween. It has some great pictures of eyes in the background and we also had fun looking at the different pumpkin eyes in the book. There are also parts of the book that we thought might be eyes as well. We had lots of fun reading it. The book is by Eve Bunting and illustrations by Jan Brett.

What you need: round eyeball erasers (found ours at Target), flat eyeball erasers (found ours at Target), colored wiggle eyes, and black rocks.

She looked through and played with all the items in the bin. The white stood out very well in the black rocks. She really loved the round eyeballs. She tired on all the colors of eyes in place of her eyes. It was tons of fun.

We did a little bit of sorting of some of the items from the bin. We sorting he white eyes. It was sorting into flat eyes and round eyes. Once they were all sorted we talked about which had more and which had less.

She sorted the flat erasers into three piles. There were 3 colors: orange, green and blue. We worked on a making some patterns with the flat eyeballs. I picked one pattern and she did the next pattern.

This was a simple sensory bin and did not take more than 2 minutes to put it together. Sometimes simple is nice to have.
