Animal Sensory Bin Printables
Use these animal sensory bin printables with toddlers and preschoolers to set up an animal themed matching activity and to start a discussion about animals.
Fill a sensory bin with a simple filler like shredded paper, colored rice, dried pasta, etc and then cut up one set of the colored cards and hide them in the bin. I would recommend laminating them for prolonged use.
Invite children to hunt for the cards in the sensory bin. As they find the cards they are to match them to the second colored card. Alternatively they can color in the images on the black and white follow up activity sheet.
To add interest you could add other animal themed items to your sensory bin such as small animal figures, fences, animals food etc.
