You're Doing It Wrong

Ever have one of those "Ah ha!" moments when you figure out why something isn't working as expected?
We've been fighting Acorn about keeping the sensory bin contents in the box - or at least on the shower  curtain we're using as a drop cloth. But somehow the desire to pour rice (or any number of other things) out on the floor just past the edge of the plastic is too strong.
He started OT at a new therapist this past spring, and they have beans & rice in small swimming pools. He never dumps it over the side there, and rarely even throws the contents of their bins.
This week I bought a small pool. Sensory bins are great for keeping his hands busy post-surgery, and distraction is always good. Sure enough, it was nearly half an hour before we had rice on the floor....even with him pouring rice from a standing position.
