Sensory activities encourage children to explore using their 5 senses!
The five senses, sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell, are the building blocks of how young children investigate and begin to understand the world around them.
One easy way to set up a sensory activity is with a sensory bin. A sensory bin (it also could be a table) helps contain the mess making it easy for you to clean up yet allowing children to explore and discover using their senses.
This sensory bin has the smell of apple pie! Perfect addition to learning about apples.
Apple Sensory Bin
Gather your materials and place in a bin or container for children to interact and explore! During play, observe and listen to what questions your children are asking.
Use these observations to plan additional STEAM activities inspired by apples!
To help get you started the full written lesson plan is included in our Apple STEAM Experience Bundle.
