Happy Monday! I’ve teamed up with a few of my blogging mama friends to share Christmas themed sensory bins this morning (head to my Instagram to see all of them HERE.) Since we have been working on Adrian’s speech/language development and introducing new words I decided to put together a Look & Find Christmas Words Sensory Bin. Keep reading to create your own and download the free printable kit below!
- Bin (Dollar Tree has great options!)
- Crinkle paper or rice
- Free Printable Kit, download here: Christmas Kit
- Optional: Laminator or Contact paper
- Put crinkle paper or rice in bin
- Print out free printable kit (link above)
- Cut out Christmas images and index cards
- Laminate each separately – don’t have a laminator? Simply get a roll of contact paper and cover both sides of the image (this step is optional, but keeps the printables sturdy!)
- Hide Christmas characters/object pictures in bin
- Place out matching name index cards and have your child look for them through the bin & match them up! Practice saying the words, focusing on letters, etc.
Want a different variety of images and words or looking for a personalized set? Visit our Etsy shop Basic Belle Boutique to order a custom version!
This is so much fun. Love the printables!!
Thanks for these!
I’ve never done a sensory bin with my son I don’t like all the mess but I think I’m going to try this one. I think he would love it.
This is so fun!! I need to try with Oliver! Thank you for the downloads!
Love this D.I.Y. The children will have so much fun.
Very great craft idea. I love this.
This is a nice way of making sensory work relevant to the holiday season. Learning should be fun all the time and this idea certainly helps with that.
My boy is too young for this now but s good one for later on c
