Christmas Sensory Fine Motor Bin

Christmas sensory bin filled with pompoms, pipe cleaners, buttons and cupcake cases.

The Christmas Sensory Fine Motor Bin is a fun and engaging activity that provides children with the opportunity to explore all the items in the tub. Children can play creatively and imaginatively in an unstructured way.

The Christmas Sensory Bin also encourages fine motor development with the addition of the scissor scoopers that can be used to catch and scoop items in the sensory tub. The scissor scoopers mimics the action of using a pair of scissors and provides a safe and fun opportunity to develop and strengthen their scissor skills.
