Today's activity is one of our favorite sensory bins! 

What better time to explore with this ice cream activity than summer. There's so many different tings you can do with this sensory bin.

You can have your kids sort colors of pom poms and beads in each cone, build cones and pretend to snack, and with the older kids, they can practice selling cones to everyone in the house. Use play money and have them count. You can also have the kiddos count the pom poms, cones and beads in the bin.

This sensory activity is also great for motor skill building. Picking up the pom poms, beads and also scooping, helps so much with building fine motor skills.

The colors and textures are inviting and eye catching, and you may find your kids playing with this bin off and on for hours! After they're done playing, relax and eat some real ice cream for snack!
