Outer Space Sensory Bin

By special request, our new unit is Outer Space and the kids are loving it!  Later in the unit I’ll be introducing a Goodnight Moon bin as well.


- 4lb bag of black beans ($6)
- 2 pkgs glow stars/ planets ($2)
- 5 small marbles, 1 lg marble (on hand)
- 12 jacks (on hand)
- Red bouncy balls (on hand)
- Handful white and yellow poms (on hand)

Total cost: $8

Marbles, jacks and poms can usually be found at the Dollar Store, if you don’t already have them on hand.  We use a large bin, 20×16, if you have a smaller bin 2-3lb beans should be sufficient.  Enjoy!
