Happy Earth Day!
This week our Tot School focus was Earth Day and teaching Emerson all about the ways we can help to take care of our planet. We celebrated with Earth Day Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast and some great sensory activities that were both impactful and educational.
Our favorite sensory activity was this Ocean Pollution Sensory Bin. It was a great activity for motor skills and learning about the issue of littering. I placed ocean animals in the bin and the trash that I collected througout the week and let Emerson use tongs to “pick up the trash” and throw it away. Her mission was to save and protect the sea creatures and she did it!
Any sensory play with water is a hit, but I love the lesson that this bin taught.
I hope you find this helpful for an Earth Day celebration with your littles!
