Orange Juice Sensory Bin

I had a big bag of oranges leftover from our Chinese New Year celebrations. I was going to make orange juice for the kids but decided that I would turn it into a sensory bin and have them make orange juice themselves! 

The children had such a fun time with this sensory bin. It kept them busy for a while. It is a great way to work on fine motor skills and hand strength. It also helps with social skills because the children had to take turns with the different tools, practice patience, and even work together with squeezing the juicer. 

I love that this was pretty easy to set up and it was fun for all of my kids. Even my one year old enjoyed squeezing the oranges (although he spent most of the time eating the oranges). I poured the juice into a cup as the kids were squeezing the oranges. Then when they were done we measured how much juice they were able to get it. It only ended up being a cup and a half. I poured some water into the fresh squeezed oranges juice to make enough for everyone to share.
