To Make Your Own Army Sensory Bin
Color your salts according to the video above. Get creative with your colors, maybe yellow and brown for a desert battle, or greens and blues for one in the jungle. We chose red, white and blue as a way to discuss some important holidays here in the United States, and why those colors are so significant.
Why Sensory Play?
Sensory play is simply a method of engaging multiple senses while playing to enhance learning and memorization. When introducing a concept, or further discussing a topic, a sensory bin will provide plenty of opportunities for hands-on learning and a real experience with the subject.
