It’s all about sensory bins for me this spring season! I love using hands on learning experiences to target speech and language goals. My latest therapy favorite are insect sensory bins. I do an insect theme in speech every year, so my insect sensory bin is the perfect addition to my stash of materials.
Between the dollar store and Target, I got all the supplies I needed to make this insect sensory bin! Check out my March Sensory Bins blog post about how to be festive this week for St. Patrick’s day. Psst…I have more spring sensory bins coming your way!!
I grabbed the black beans and plastic bing from Target ($1.54 for the beans & $3.84 for the bin), glass beads and mod podge from the dollar store and my FREE printable insect pdf!
You can target so many skills with this sensory bin! Turn taking, describing by attributes, building MLU and grammar, pretend play and so much more!!
I also made this fun insect sensory bin with real toy bugs! (Amazon affiliate links are included for your convenience) I found the green grass in the party wrapping section at the dollar store. Amazon has lots of fun bug sets! I got this insect set and these giant insects for the bin.
I found the net and some magnifying glasses at the dollar store. Cute, huh!?
I have been pairing my sensory bins with my Insect Task Cards & Activities. The magnifying glasses have QR codes to really cool youtube videos about each insect!
What do you think? How would you use these insect sensory bins in therapy?
