Mini Sensory Bin for Kids
Sensory bins are all the rage! If you Google "sensory bins for kids" you will get an enormous variety of ideas: valentine sensory bins, messy sensory bins, birthday sensory bins, the list goes on. It's enough to overload your ... um... senses. (Oh, come on! I had to say that!)
As creative as all those sensory bin ideas are, however, sometimes simple is best. Or rather, lazy is best. Because lazy is what I was when I came across this small bucket of rice mixed with letters and numbers in the closet. It had been sitting in there since Kiddo used to play the Sift -n-Spell game.
New Kid loves to run his hand through the rice, looking for letters, telling me what he finds and spilling a little on the floor (just being honest). I love sensory bins because they keep New Kid busy and I appreciate a mini bin because it means less rice to vacuum up.
