How to Create a Winter Sensory Bin

Children of all ages enjoy sensory play, and winter is the perfect season to explore learning opportunities through the 5 senses. By using taste, touch, sight, smell, and sound, children develop their cognitive, language, social, emotional and motor skills. Sensory play can also help children calm down and focus for other learning activities that require sustained attention, such as story time. 

So what do you think of when you think of winter? I think of snow, snowmen, penguins, polar bears, ice crystals, snowball fights, snow angels, and even hot chocolate. Brainstorming from these possible themes can lead to the creation of some exceptional sensory bins to supplement any book unit or play opportunity.

In this post, I want to share with you my winter sensory bin and give you a few ideas on sensory bins you can create around your winter themes.
