Worms & bugs sensory bin

Play idea involving very realistic worms made of pasta and soil made of coffee grounds.

What I used:

  • Boiled spaghetti;
  • Coffee grounds;
  • Bag of plastic bugs (link below);
  • Wood chips;
  • Stones;
  • Plants;
  • Scoops;
  • A transparent storage box.

Create a small world using the above materials. Save what you can and reuse. Always make a habit to ask the child to wash and sort materials at the end as part of the play project.

The boiled pasta sticks to the coffee ground and gives a very realistic feel.
