Good Night Moon Tot Trays and Sensory Bin

Our story this week is Good Night Moon. I love this book, it’s such a sweet and simple story.

Sensory Bin:

I got the idea for this week’s sensory bin from Pinterest. I love Pinterest, I get a lot of ideas for school from there. Such a great but addicting website. Anyway, getting totally off topic.

In our bin:

  • black beans
  • the little black ball fillers I got from the dollar tree that were in last week’s space theme bin
  • glow in the dark stars
  • yellow pom poms
  • bowl
  • spoon
  • pink bunny toy
  • 3 little counting bears
  • plastic tongs


Tot Trays:

M is for Moon magnet page from Making Learning Fun


Quilt matching puzzle from Confessions of a Homeschooler

Good Night Moon Puzzle, another idea from Pinterest, just make a copy of the book cover, print it out, cut it into puzzle pieces and laminate.

Small, medium and large moon (yellow pom poms) sorting

Transferring red balloons (red pom poms) using tongs and an ice cube tray

  1. Love the sensory bin and your photos!

    • Thanks! I’m trying to create more hands on activities for both kids this year. It is easy for the preschooler and not so much for the almost middle schooler.
