Easter Sensory Bin

This Easter sensory bin assembly was completely effortless since we had so many cute goodies left over from our our 3D collage Hobby Lobby and Dollar Tree hauls. This time around, colored rock salt was used as a base. You can find the tutorial on how to color rock salt, rice, and macaroni in our post here.

Oh, look who is making yet another appearance! We cannot get enough of the soft little chicks. The great thing is, is that even though this bin will contain many of the same items that the children will have used in their collages, they will be using them in totally different ways, creating new learning experiences.

MATERIALS USED:

– Any suitable container
– A batch of colored rock salt (tutorial here)
– Plastic eggs
– Plastic bunny eggs
– Small glitter eggs
– Colored buttons
– Chicks
– Easter grass
– Small baskets
– Small cups
– Ice cream scoop
– Sand rake
– Tweezers

Easter Peeps Math Activity

This math activity is sure to engage preschoolers while reinforcing size skills. Have the children arrange the Peeps in different ways before adhering them onto the paper. Ask them to arrange the pieces from smallest to biggest and then biggest to smallest. Also have them separate the two bigger from two smaller. Finally, let the kids choose which size order they would like to glue the bunnies in.

In addition, be sure to discuss other words that mean big (huge, large, etc.) and small (tiny, little etc.), and incorporate them into the task.

Free Kite Scissor Skills Printables

St. Patrick’s Day is over, and we have had our fill of rainbows. So for the last few days, it’s been all things kites in the classroom. The end of the school year is creeping upon us, and I needed to see where some of my kids are at with their scissor skills. I made these kite cutting sheets, which proved to be a fun way to assess their progress.

There are 3 free printables available: one straight line, one curvy, and one zigzag.
