Muddy Farm Sensory Bin

Muddy Farm Sensory Play is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers to practice cleaning muddy farm animals.
 My girls both love all types of sensory activities so I knew I had to set up a farm related sensory bin during farm week.  The day before, we had been at the state fair and saw all the animals, some of them all cleaned up, some of them getting washed and cleaned and ready to show.  I decided to do a cleaning activity for our sensory bin.  I actually set up two sensory bins - a muddy farm and the clean dry farm.  We read some farm books and then we were ready to get to work.

 First, I put sand in the first bin and added water to make a sandy muddy mess.  Then I tossed the farm animals in there.

 Next to it I set up a bucket of soapy water and then a bucket of clean water.  I gave my girls old toothbrushes and sponges and told them they needed to clean each animal.

 They absolutely loved it and worked so hard to clean every piece of sand off of the animals.

When they finished and dried off their animals, I told them to put them in the clean farm/pasture.  When I set it up, I envisioned them quickly cleaning the animals and then spending most of the time playing with the animals in the clean bin.  I was wrong!  As soon as they got them all clean, they took them back over to the mud and started all over again.  I totally underestimated how much they would love the cleaning part.  I'll have to remember that for future sensory activities.  I had them do this in bathing suits outside anticipating a big mess but it really wasn't at all.  They didn't get wet or muddy.  Definitely a sensory bin win!
