Ocean Sensory Bin

Posted by LeLe Sims on

There is no better time to engage and inspire ocean advocates than childhood. Start out by creating under the sea sensory bin. It's an easy set up, recreating sea foam and having young ones search for shells and more.

Ocean Sensory Bin 

Supplies

  • Long container (any size will do)
  • Shells – we collected our from the beach
  • A scoop, tea strainers and sponge 
  • Shaving cream
  • Liquid water color (food coloring works as well)

Sea Sensory Bin How to's

Add sand, water beads, and other ocean-themed objects. We kept it simple and used what we found at the beach.

Through the use of seashells, plant life, and ocean animals, children can learn to identify ocean life as well as engage in dramatic play.
