Star Sensory Bin.
I put together a star-themed sensory bin with dried black beans and dyed black rice as the ‘night sky.’ I used star beads and star buttons in bright colors, as well as some astronaut, shuttle, and flag figurines. (Oh, and I threw in a few glow-in-the-dark stars I had on hand too)
I gave Red a scoop, some tongs, and a glass jar to fill, and he was set. He doesn’t understand a lot of the space concept yet, but he still likes to fly the space shuttle in the air and walk the astronauts around.
