Sensory Bin

This is the sensory bin that I have prepared for the children. Inside the bin are some flowers, insects, magnifying glass, a very small rake and shove, and potting soil. The pot is for the Wonder Eggs that we will plant when I present this to them. Wonder Eggs are very easy to grow. They sprout in about 7-10 days. They grow approximately three feet tall and produce beautiful purple flowers. They start out glistening white and gradually turn golden yellow at maturity. The child will take the bin to the mat. They will then get the other bin that is pictured below that will be on the shelf next to the sensory bin. This  bin "the garden bin" has a apron the child will wear , a spray bottle, knee pad, and child size garden tools. The aim for this activity is for the child to understand the basics of planting flowers and caring for flowers, that plants need soil, water, air, and sunlight to grow, and observing growth. I will be linking this up to Science Sunday hosted by Adventures In Mommydom


  1. Great Post!
    You will be featured on The Montessori Goldmine this week

  2. It will be interesting to see what your kiddos think of all of this. Looks like lots of fun.

  3. I can't wait to see what the kids do with this. I have to admit I've never been super lucky with sensory bins, it always ends up a big mess, but they do so intrigue me.

  4. Finally made it!
    Hope you had a happy mother's day!
