Farm Animal Sensory Bin
Objective: Feed the farm animals by pouring the kernels through the milk carton chute!
Grasping the small kernels is great for fine motor development, hand-eye coordination, and building finger isolation. Feeding them through the chute helps build pincer grasp strength and finger dexterity. Developing the ability to manipulate their fingers in a coordinated manner and setting the foundation for future everyday tasks like; spoon holding/self feeding, cutting with scissors, and shoe tying.
This bin consists of a milk carton decorated with some construction paper to resemble a barn, sensory bin tools, i.e. spoon or tongs to scoop and grab, corn kernels, funnel to make it easier (optional), and some farm animal friends. Animal figurines are Schleich brand, and can be found on Amazon.com!
