Our theme this week was bugs so I set out a Bugs themed sensory bin for my kids. My toddler, preschooler and older kids love exploring and playing with our sensory bins so I try my best to create one each month. I have been collecting different types of bugs for a while in order to use them for our sensory bin. My ladybug cut and paste visual perception activity is a perfect addition to this sensory bin.

– Green colored rice (use rice, vinegar and green food coloring. You can follow the steps in my how to color salt tutorial.)
– Different Bugs, tools, cups and other items. You can use butterflies, insects and ladybugs. These bugs look really adorable! I purchased all the ones I used at a random local store.
– A bin to place these items in.
How to make this sensory bin:
Add in your dyed green rice and then use your figurines to create a scene.
I added some big ladybugs as well as some small ladybugs.
I placed some butterflies and some dragonflies around the bin as well as on the tree.
How my kids used the bin:
She did some sorting by placing all the baby(small) ladybugs in a cup.
