This hatching chick Spring sensory bin is great for imaginative play, learning to count and exploring different textures. The best bit is hatching the plastic easter eggs to see how many chicks are inside each egg.
You will need:
- Plastic eggs
- Little chicks
- Shredded paper
- Foam chicks and eggs
Hatching Chick Sensory Bin
This sensory bin was really easy to set up using the eggs and chicks we had left over from Easter. I tried to include a few different textures for Harry to explore, so I put shredded paper, feathers, foam eggs and chicks into a basket. Then I filled the plastic eggs with little chicks.
Harry had a great time collecting and hatching the plastic eggs. He loved counting the chicks in each egg and was especially pleased with the egg I had squeezed loads of chicks into. After he had hatched all the chicks Harry enjoyed some imaginative play with the chicks, eggs and some of the shredded paper.
