I don’t usually let my blog be the inspiration for activities I do with the boys, rather the activities inspire the blog. However, I’m doing the ABC’s of Sensory Bins next week and I was STUCK on X when the idea of an X-ray sensory bin hit me. I thought it sounded like a lot of fun, so we went for it!
I wanted to keep the colors black and white so I used black eyed peas as my base. Then I cut up some black construction paper and tried to crimp it. I would have put the construction paper through a shredder, as that would have been so easy, but I don’t have a shredder!
At Dollar Tree I found some glow in the dark skeleton pieces that I knew would be perfect! They’re dinosaur skeletons, but bones are bones!
I also included some glow sticks and the cardboard tubes that the sticks come in.
All good sensory tubs should include spoons or cups, so I found a bright orange spoon that almost glowed. Tongs and a metal spatula were thrown in as well.
This bin has been one of our best bins yet! They boys loved playing with it and amazingly didn’t fight over anything. I just wish the glow sticks would re-glow…but at $1 a for a pack of 5, I think we can remake this again!
