Aircraft sensory bin #2

Aircraft shredded paper sensory bin


Sometimes messy and sensory play is well… messy and not everyone is a huge fan of mess. So if you aren’t a fan of mess then this one is for you.



What you need:

  • A Tray
  • 60 grams of (light) blue shredded paper
  • 6 cotton wool balls
  • Toy planes and helicopters



For this aviation sensory bin, it is merely a case of lining the tray with the (light) blue shredded paper, unrolled some of the cotton balls and putting them together to make clouds, dotting the remaining cotton balls around the tray and placing the planes and helicopter toys on top.


Oliver had a great time pulling the paper apart, throwing it about the place and then putting it back into the tray. We also made holes in the shredded paper and flew the planes through them. The planes did keep getting caught in it and so we had to keep untangling them, but that was all part of the fun.

Once Oliver got bored of the activity, I just scooped up the paper and the cotton balls, run the hoover over and the living room was good as new.
