Make an Aladdin / Arabian Nights Sensory Bin!

My class loves our Aladdin themed sensory bin!!!  I love combining a sensory bin with an academic activity, such as letter recognition or CVC words.  And this bin is a perfect combination!

Here is how I created it.

I started by layering in some shredded paper.  I had this left over from my winter sensory bin.

I added in some beads strings.  I purchased necklaces and then just cut them into different lengths.

I found these gems at the craft store.  I loaded the bin up with these.

I also added some sheer ribbon lengths.  These originally had wire in them, but I pulled the wire out after cutting the ribbon.

I headed to my local Halloween store for this genie lamp.  Luckily the store is open year-round!

Here it is!  All ready for my genie and magic carpet cards!

You can find 2 different versions of cards in my TpT store - CVC words and Alphabet letters!
