Sensory Activity: Valentine Sensory Bin
I was first introduced to the idea of sensory bins last year around this time. The very first one I ever put together was a Valentine themed one. Here's a photo of last year's bin:
This year, I just did a variation of the same bin. I added more Epsom salt and a cardboard tube to pour into or drop hearts/gems in. Kellan has taken to bringing his cars and trains to the bin and running them through the salt as well.
The cloud dough last month was a big hit for my 9 year old, but I think a little TOO MUCH sensory experience for Kellan. He played with it a bit, but did not come back to it over and over again. So I wanted to make sure to use a filler this month that I knew he would like. He has come back to this bin every day for the last week.
And then at me! Peek a boo!
Happy Valentine's to everyone!!
