OT Activity of the Day:
Cotton Ball Sensory Bin
Target Age Range: 2 and up
This is a "no mess" sensory bin designed for those children who absolutely do not want to get messy. You can put only soft items in or mix textures, whatever you and your child prefer.
Here I'm using it as an "ice cream station". Scooping with the ice cream scooper works on wrist forearm rotation and putting the cotton balls on the empty toilet paper roll (ice cream cone) is great practice for 2 handed use. I then used small craft poms as "sprinkles".
Again, just one idea, you can mix this up and customize the bin as much as you would like! Enjoy!
