Bugs Sensory Bin ~ What’s in the Tub?

It's sensory bin Wednesday again! We're exploring some creepy-crawly friends in this Bugs tub for your Tot to explore.
What's included:
black beans
2 bugs books (Target dollar section)
(2) 5 piece bug variety sets (Target dollar section)
Insect flashcards (Target dollar section)
We sorted the bugs and found the matching flashcard.  It was easy until we got to the praying mantis vs. grasshopper. That one almost stumped them!
We are big fans of local honey, Aaron already knew most of what the bee book taught us. (Here is he teaching it to Lydia.)
Aaron, again, is trying to teach Lydia as she drops black beans all over the carpet.)
Much fun was had making all kinds of bug faces and inspecting them closer.

What's in the Tub? is a monthly feature that focuses on fun sensory tub ideas to go along with the monthly theme at Totally Tots. Click here to see the past sensory tub ideas.
