Ok I will be honest, I actually went a little sensory crazy for this week and ended up with several Frozen preschool sensory activities. I created a few bins for this lesson plan and I may actually give Jael a few more because she loved them that much.

Place 1 cup of the barley in the Ziplock bag and add 10 drops of food colouring as well as 1 teaspoon water. Shake vigourously in order to distribute the food colouring evenly. Leave ziplock bag overnight to dry.
Add the coloured barley to the container as well as the plain barley and add the silver decoration as well. Next place a measuring cup, measuring spoon and anything else you think your preschooler will love to play with.
What She Did
Once I gave J the go ahead, she ran happily to her bin. She practiced her pouring and scooping skills by using her measuring cup and spoon. She also practiced counting- she counted each scoop of barley she poured into her cup. I even overheard her talking to her little brother and telling him this is her sensory bin and that he can play with it. I even got invited to play with her. There is something about hearing my daughter say the words, “Mommy play with me please?” that melts my heart.
