Details are below about the NATIVITY fine motor busy bins in this set. Examples of all activities can be found in the photos above.
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. How awesome is is that?!
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.
