My favorite thing about Christmas is seeing the magic of the season through my children’s eyes. This year, my toddler loves everything about Christmas trees. (Tismis Tee as he likes to say) Throughout the holiday, I like to plan a variety activities for kids where my children can explore, learn, and have fun. Since my toddler loves Christmas trees so much, I knew that he would enjoy playing with a Christmas Tree Sensory Bin. Playing with themed sensory bins are an entertaining way for children to discover new things through their senses.
- Plastic Container
- Cotton Balls
- Artificial Christmas Tree Branches or Garland
- Jingle Bells
- Plastic Bulb Ornaments
- Put a layer of cotton balls on the bottom of a plastic container.
- Cut the tree branches or garland into pieces that are about 4 inches long and place the pieces on top of the cotton balls.
- Add the tinsel, jingle bells, and plastic bulb ornaments. You can also include battery operated, flameless tea lights and sprinkle a light layer of cinnamon on the bottom of the container. (Some plastic bulb ornaments have a metal top. You many want to remove that top as a safety precaution.)
- Let your child learn and discover new things.
Sensory Bins are always fun, tactile sensory activities for kids. Your children are sure to love exploring the parts of a Christmas tree in this Christmas Tree Sensory Bin.
