Pot of Gold Fine Motor Sensory Play {St. Patrick's Day Activity for Kids}

One of the reasons why I made metallic dyed beans in the first place was so that I could make a pot of gold inspired sensory activity for St. Patrick's Day. I ended up creating two mini sensory bins, one for each of my boys, using the golden beans. Here's our simple fine motor mini sensory bins inspired by a pot of gold.

To recreate our mini pot of gold sensory bins, you'll need:

I draped the pipe cleaners over the edge of the bowl so that it looked like there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Both boys loved to scoop up the gold using the yellow scooper/tweezer thing. We love it because it is so great for encouraging fine motor skills.

The boys also loved to dig in and play with the "gold" too.

Finally, J really enjoyed making rainbow sculptures with the pipe cleaners. Here he is building his sculpture.
