Alphabet Sensory Bins: Letter I

This sensory bin was inspired by the letter I.

My husband suggested using icing sugar as part of this bin, but I wanted something simpler.  And less messy.  So we went with a super easy letter I bin that featured a lot of "ice" things.
  • Ice
  • Ice cream foam play set
  • Ice cube tray
  • Igloo from Safari Arctic TOOB
  • Ice cream scoop
  • Large foam letter I
  • Small foam letter I
Ice, ice, baby...
We set this bin up a few weeks ago for the boys to explore after K's nap.  J reached for the foam letters first, while K picked up the ice cream scoop first.

Checking out the bin
Of course, the ice had to be tasted by both boys.

Now K gives it a taste.
J also spent some time sorting the ice cubes into the ice cube tray.

Practicing some one-to-one correspondence.

J also used the ice and some scoops from the ice cream foam set to "trace" the large foam I.

And then, as usual, K climbed into the bin.  

K has climbed on in.
Another successful bin.
What would you put in your letter I themed sensory bin?  Tell me in the comments.

  1. I love this bin! Great ideas. The letter I is pretty tough. I guess an iguana could swim around!

    1. Thanks. And I agree that letter I is tough.
