I am so excited to finally get back into blogging. I took a couple of months off to really enjoy summer and gather all the things I wanted to work on. I am so happy to be sharing you one of Adin’s favourite activities. It’s the sensory bin made by Sensa Kids. After getting our own, we loved how each time he played with it he got better and more creative with it.
We attended Sensa kids sensory bin play date that they host very month and Adin was so excited and could not handle his excitement. There was so much for him to do and it was like he could not get enough of it. I love how each bin was a different type of sensory and the one he loved most was the sensory he was able to walk in. He could NOT stop laughing, and smiling through his feet. It was just full of fun for him. Something I wish had been around longer because it sure kept him busy.
I wanted to fully answer all the questions on the sensory bin and what uses sensory bins are for and why you need one and how to really keep it clean and safe at your house.
Language skills – Toddlers are able to expand their vocabulary when they describe their play experience. For an example – Adin will try to hide the balls under the “snow” so he could find them.
Fine Motor Skills – Their fine motor skills get improved each time they are played when they are manipulating small objects. For an example – Adin will use his small tools. He will scoop the snow then put it in a cup . He loves to dump it into the other bin as well.
Social Skills – Sensory bins are good for social skills. They learn about sharing, playing and communicating with others while playing. Adin does well with others when they are in the sensory bin and he picks up other ideas how to play with that certain object in the bin.
Lastly, Independent & Creative play – I watch Adin play but I really let him just go at it. I watch him from a far and I just observe. He has a great time and I feel like he is learning so much more when he just left alone to figure it out.
I also wanted to cover on how to keep it clean and safe for your home. I know a lot of mamas out there are wondering how it’s kept clean and safe and if they really think its the best option for their babe. This was hard for me but after really researching and talking to Sensa kids, I made the choice to get one and loved it ever since. I do watch him a far and make sure if he gets bored that we do put it away. This really helps with them not just getting bored and then dumping it around the house. We put it in his play room, on a mat and each time we pull it out, its a different type of play. For an example, we did types of sports (baseball, soccer ball, basket ball) and the one before that he did letters. When he is done with playing, we clean up. Put the toys away and put the bins away. He never fights it. Because he played with it, he explored and he done with it. If you are looking on how to clean the sensory snow or the water beads.
