Find details about the Rainbows Fine Motor Busy Bins for spring and St. Patricks Day activity descriptions and extra supply lists can be found below. Check out the images above to see the busy bins in action.
Print and prep the fine motor busy bins, and store them in small storage containers with lids (mine are from Walmart – some teachers use ziplock or colorful buckets). Switch out the 12 activities each time you switch themes. Yep, this idea is genius!
What is a busy bin exactly?
A busy bin is similar to a busy bag activity. You put the activity together and store it in a bin to be used over and over again. Busy bins are reusable learning activities – prep once and play forever!
Each fine motor busy bin activity comes with an instruction page and a label for your bin.
