Rainbow Sensory Adventure Lets Kids Touch a Cloud, Sift the Sky, and Find a Hidden Treasure

Rainbow Sensory Adventure Lets Kids Touch a Cloud, Sift the Sky, and Find a Hidden Treasure

When my youngest was in preschool we found out that he had some sensory sensitivities to things touching his hands. I think kids would really benefit from this kit to help them with their sensory. They will have a lot of fun! 

A new rainbow sensory bin takes children on a colorful, touchable, mess-free adventure while strengthening fine motor skills and encouraging screen-free, imaginative play. 

RosieReader.com reviews a new book each week, which it then builds book-inspired activities around, including free printables for preschoolersfree book-inspired play ideas for kids, and easy crafts for kids (as well as easy Spanish-language lessons, using items adults are likely to already have at home. Every book on the site is reviewed (as relayed) by 3-year-old Rosie, with added insight from Mom. Coder, a former journalist, hopes to build a community of avid and engaged young readers and to add value to parents who find themselves unexpectedly homeschooling, as well as teachers seeking additional free resources to use in virtual classes or offline classrooms. She’s also hoping the watercolor imagery and simplicity of her website will create a moment of respite for adults.

Sensory bin play holds many benefits, such as:

·      Sensory play encourages kids to use their different senses, like: touch, sight, sounds, taste, and/or smell to learn and explore.

·      Sensory play helps children learn to play together, socialize and talk.

·      Sensory activities are a great way for children to learn to communicate, practice sharing, and participate in exploratory play.

·      Sensory play can also help to boost a child’s language development.

·      Sensory bins tend to be filled with different objects, offering an opportunity to discuss items.

·      Sensory play also helps kids with cognitive skills like sorting, counting, and categorizing. 

·      Sensory play helps strengthen fine motor skills  when kids scoop, pour and grasp using their hands, fingers, and tools, which are the building blocks toward writing!

Children will dig past soft cotton balls, or ‘cumulus clouds,’ and sift through a blue rice ‘sky’ to find rainbow blocks, loose gems, a scroll that reveals a map (to color) of ‘Over the Rainbow Land’ and a golden-colored treasure chest. Inside the chest, kids will be surprised by a sparkly plastic ring, another gem, and the real treasure – a tiny book.

The clear plastic allows children to see what’s inside, creating a three dimensional I Spy bottle. The sound of the rice and the movement, is comforting and calming. Children and adults are able to easily pour the bin’s contents into their preferred container at home or onto a paper plate – which makes clean up quick and easy. The contents all fit back into the bottle for repeat play. When the unfurled map begins to wear, adults may print a new one for free, along with the other free activities, at www.rosiereader.com/rainbow.
