Find details about the TRANSPORTATION Fine Motor Busy Bins activity descriptions and extra supply lists below. Check out the images above to see how the busy bins look prepped and ready to go!
Print and prep the fine motor busy bins, and store them in small storage containers with lids (mine are from Walmart – some teachers use ziplocs or colorful buckets). Switch out the 12 activities each time you switch themes. Yes, we agree. This is such a great idea!
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.
