Bird Seed sensory fun

Pin It
Today we made our plastic lid bird feeders as an Earth day project. While we were making these the pan to press the lids into for seeds became a play pan for my 3yr old son.  To start he was just having so much fun running his hands through it.  We then added a truck and shovel.  Anything you can shovel and put in a dump truck is a hit at my house!  This is so simple and I am sure we could build upon this to make it bigger and better.  However, sometimes simple is all that is needed to have fun!

The bird seed turned into a  great sensory activity for him.  I love when we stubble upon new ideas to try.  I enjoy letting his creativity take over when he plays.

Please do come and visit us again. We would love to have you back:-)

All kids are different and only you can decide how you let your kids play. And with what materials you let them play with. My children are supervised when playing. Please keep this in mind with any post you read of mine!
