Spring has sprung, finally! And it’s time to explore outside. If your kids are anything like mine, they love to dig in the dirt. My 11 year old is still fascinated by all things bugs. Now, though, there’s no need to wait for a nice day when little ones can dig for bugs in our Digging For Bugs Spring Sensory Bin.
This is about as easy as can be to put together. All you need is a clear plastic bin. Fill with dry, black beans. And introduce an array of creepy, crawly plastic bugs.
The best way is to start with a layer of beans, add bugs, then bury with more beans. Give kids a pair of small plastic tongs so they can dig in the â€œdirtâ€ and extract whatever bugs they find. You could easily make our Digging For Bugs Spring Sensory Bin into a game, too.
