Nontraditional sensory filler

paper grass was a surprise hit this week as the sensory bin filler in our orange loose parts sensory bin

This paper straw has been sitting in my drawer for months now waiting for me to come up with a use for it.  It’s not a traditional sensory filler. It doesn’t scoop or pour well but it is still fun to play with all the same.

I expected her to basically ignore the grass and see it as more of a nuisance but it ended up being her favorite part and I had to encourage her to explore the loose parts!

The Orange Loose Parts sensory bin is simple and still offers lots of varied play opportunity!

Fine Motor Skills are starting to show up!

our Orange loose parts sensory bin is a simple setup but offers lots of different objects of different weights, sizes, and textures to practice picking up

We have finally reached a point in her fine motor that tongs are not impossible to use! After a quick demonstration on where to hold them to make them work she is a pro. She really enjoyed using the tongs to grab the grass, probably because it was lighter and required basically no aiming. She could just blindly reach in and always come away with some grass between the tongs.
