Education Cubes ~ Sensory Bin Style

Education Cubes Show & Tell

My kids LOVE throwing around our Education Cubes but mommy needed a CALMER activity so after learning about Sensory Bins I decided to combine the two! 

At first Monkey was a little hesitant. He has some mild sensory issues so it took him a little time to warm up to the idea of having to touch the beans to get to the colored objects. He also didn't like that I had put some of his cars in the bin!

The first photo is him watching Unicorn show him how to roll the cube and then find something of that color in the bin. She found his yellow car and put it on the cube.

Next Ladybug HAD to have a turn! She rolled green and found a green circle in the bin. I had her use tweezers to have her show him another way to pick up an object in the bin.

In the third photo, Monkey has gotten the hang of this. He rolled blue and found his blue car to put on the cube.

Then, he rolled brown and decided to use one of the beans!

The last photo is him putting a red triangle on the cube.
Pin It!
