As always I let them just play with the bin. It is fun to see what they will do and how they adapt play from older sensory bins to the current one.

We sorted the pirates and their items. We talked about the different items in the pirates have. Their favorite was the ship.

Once we had all the pirates and their items out we looked at the coins. They sorted out some of the coins and talked about their names. We looked at quarters and pennies this time.

Don’t forget that the most important part of a sensory bin is just letting them play. The girls liked to pour coins and rice from hands to hands to the bin. As always I love to keep bins around for a week so I can see how they play with each item.

    Oh what a fabulous idea for a sensory bin! I’m pinning this to remind me about it later. #supermommyclub

    Love the idea of adding the coins. I am doing something similar, added a couple of pirate shaped copper banks to put coins into, lots of red, blue, and clear “diamond” gems, a parrot pill box, seashells, and other things for them to dig with and sort. This theme is turning out so fun for the summer. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

      If I could have found where the girls put my gems I would have put them in, but I could not find them before the post. I’m sure they will resurface at some time.

  4. My kids love pirates and pirate books, so this is right up their alley!

    Thanks for linking up with The Thoughtful Spot!

  5. What a fun sensory bin theme!
