Do your young kids like learning about bugs? Here is a fun I-spy sensory bin activity, perfect for little ones to develop visual perception and counting skills!
This printable(download instructions below) I made can be used as is- simply as a worksheet type of activity, searching for the different bugs, counting and writing it down. Or, you can cut the bugs out and add it to a sensory bin like I did here(my kids still enjoy sensory bins).
My son decided he “needed” the magnifying glass to see better, lol!
TIP: Print more sets and have a competition between siblings/friends to see who can find the most bugs in a certain time.
Such a fun little activity to keep children happily occupied for a while AND they do learn quite a lot through this activity too!
This printable is FREE for a limited time only and part of our Bugs Preschool Pack available in our TpT store!
