Songbird Sensory Bin for Your Little Birder4:00 PM
"Woo-pecker," he states pointing out the window. Not only did he recognize woodpeckers as a toddler, but it was great fun to hear him say, "woo-pecker eat bugs." Now nearly 5, this boy recognizes more birds than I knew even last year. We have learned so many together. And yes, my boy still loves his birds.
In fact his love of birds inspired me to create this Songbird Sensory Bin!
Items in the Bin:
How to Assemble a Bird Themed Sensory Bin
Toob of Backyard Birds
Nest (or something shaped like a nest)
To put this bird themed sensory bin together, I started out with a Toob of Backyard Birds which gave me several birds that are common enough in our area that we have seen them as well as a few we are still watching for.
Time for Bird Themed Sensory Play
After about a week of play, the little nest started to fall apart as would be expected. The little birds stayed out though. We printed out little cards that match the songbirds from Every Star is Different to continue learning about these birds, and hopefully, we get a chance to see and learn about more of them together!
