Since my little lady still puts everything in her mouth, I am constantly in search of fun and edible sensory activities. I thought why not try something fun, colorful, and yummy?! The Fruit Loop sensory bin was born! I love sensory bins because they help my daughter develop her fine-motor skills and experience different textures using her senses. I love that my little lady gets to have fun learning!
First, I added Fruit Loops to the bin. (For a healthier option, try plain Cheerios or other low-sugar cereals.)
Then I let my daughter play! She flipped the green toy car over and began filling it up with the cereal.
I threaded the Fruit Loops onto the piper cleaner and then she had fun taking them all off.
This activity really was fruity educational fun!
Quick tip: I use a "mess mat" under these types of activities for a quick and easy cleanup. My mess mat is simply a plastic shower curtain from the dollar store that I use to quickly dispose of any mess that is made.
