This week we took a break from our animal themed baby bins to have all kinds of fun with leprechauns, rainbows, pots of gold, and all things green for St. Patrick’s Day.
Here is a look at our second set of 6 seasonal themed baby bins:
Here are the details for each of our activities:
St. Patrick’s Theme Read Aloud:
This week we read the adorable story of the Itsy Bitsy Leprechaun. We loved that this book followed the same tune of the itsy bitsy spider, making it easy and fun for Aubrey to join in on repeated readings.
St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Bin:
Soapy Rainbow Bin:
In this bin: dish soap, water, pouch lids, rainbow colored cups
To create this bin I squeezed a good amount of dish soap into the bottom of our sensory bin. THen I ran warm water on top to create a bin filled with sudsy soap. Finally I sprinkled pouch lids in rainbow order on top of the soap bubbles. Aubry used colored cups to scoop, sort and play.
St. Patrick’s Water Play:
Dot Art Shamrock:
For our second art project we used our dot stampers to stamp a shamrock. I printed a shamrock outline on cardstock and cut out the center. THen I taped the shamrock to a white sheet of paper. Aubrey used green and yellow regular and mini dot stampers to fill in the shamrock. After she finished we pulled off the outline to reveal her work of art!
Pots of Gold Sensory Bin:
In this bin: split peas, yellow pom poms, pots, fine motor tools
