Mini Sensory Bins

Acorn dumping out the money bin
Lately we've been doing a lot of different things with sensory bins. One of our most popular things right now is the mini bins - small containers with sensory activities. As you can see above, coins have been pretty popular (and he loves throwing pennies into fountains too).  We also have a container of rice, and a container that holds a bag of 15 bean soup mix beans:

These are great when we don't have a lot of time to clean up a big mess. Acorn is really into the sorts of bins he can pour and stir and scoop, so we're sticking with those sorts of things for the containers.

  1. ooh! stirring and scooping are favorite things for Billy, but he ends up making a mess. Never thought about just embracing the madness fully and giving him bins to encourage that, probably a better idea.
