Bible Sensory Bin Idea List

Bible Sensory Bin Idea List

Sensory bins are popular right now for mothers all over the world and United States, but why not use these hands-on activities for a Sunday School class or teaching a Bible lesson?

The sensory bin can be used as a great hands-on tool for teaching a Bible lesson or reinforcing a lesson as a hands-on activity for review through play for preschoolers through elementary school. They are made of a small bin filled with a filler (rice, beans, water beads, etc.) and other toys or other age-appropriate elements that would picture the elements of the story you are teaching.  If you have never used one then I challenge you to read up on it here on my original post: Sensory Bins for Sunday School or read Sensory bins for teaching the Bible written by Annette at In All You Do. She tells you how to highlight a specific part of the Bible story you’re wanting to teach and make it into a sensory bin.

This Bible Sensory Bin Idea List comes from Bible sensory bins across the internet that will spark your mind for a little creativity in your classroom at church or at home.
