Last month’s theme was outer space. This Outer Space Sensory Bin was fun to put together! I decided to place all the items into a blue container. This container could be used for other themes as well, like the ocean.
I purchased this type of gravel. WARNING: This is very messy – I recommend using a tarp under it so you can easily scoop all the gravel back into the bin.
Then I found a small set of NASA astronauts, an American flag, and a rocket at our local science museum – along with a cool green alien. I also had some kids binoculars. Here’s what it looked like all together in the bin.
