Hanukkah Sensory Bin!

Hanukkah Sensory Bin Light the Menorah

I have been exploring Hanukkah with the girls. It has been a great fun. We made a Hanukkah Sensory Bin to go with the book Light the Menorah.

What you need: Hanukkah foam stickers, dreidels, mini menorah, candles, Hanukkah Puzzle and yarn white and blue. (Please remember the with small items younger children need to be watched).

They explored what was in the bin. There are many different textures that they could explore: soft, hard, squishy, and slippery.

They did the puzzle and named the pieces. It is a good way to build vocabulary that they might not always use.

They pulled out the nine candles from the bin. It took a while to find all nine of them.

We counted the candles they found. We talked about why there at 9 candles and not just eight. That the 9th candle is the Shamash.

We read the book and matched up the candles on each of the pages. This was a great building up on numbers and to see how the candles go up each day. We talked about how many candles they might use every night.

A fun way to review counting and learning about Hanukkah! Hanukkah starts on the night of Saturday December 8th this year.
