Hot air balloon craft and activity
This page includes hot air balloon sensory box with for our air transportation theme prepared by me for my sweet girl.
Sensory bins have a significant place in Montessori philosophy of education. To mention briefly, they are the bins in which the objects, materials appealing to as many senses as possible are placed.The purpose is to appeal to eyesight, sense of taste, hearing and touch.
These sensory bins help our children touch many different senses and learn lots of concepts by stimulating their senses. They contribute to the development of fine motor skills as they also include activities like transferring etc. along with sensitising the senses.
This is one of our fun sensory bin ideas.
