In honor of Spring, I created this pond/lifecycle of a frog sensory bin/small world play.
I used fishtank plants, as well as fake plant leaves that i've collected from Goodwill (one of my favorite places for sensory bin material.) I made the lilly pad from a sheet of foam. The green rocks are those vase gems you find in the floral section.
I also bought a packet of figures that show the lifecyle of a frog at Hobby Lobby and added these to the pond. We had lots of fun talking about how a tadpole becomes a frog. L had lots of questions and asked me more than once to explain the process to him.
This was one of my favorite sensory bins/small world play setups yet!
