One of neat ideas I've seen in blogland for awhile is something called a sensory bin. I decided to create one for this unit and this is what it looks like!
|Testing it out for the first time.|
|Starting to pull stuff out.|
|Unloading the box.|
|He loved the "crystals"|
|Notice it is all on the floor? Don't worry, when he was done, he picked almost all of it up on his own.|
As far as storage - I dont' have a ton of space to store this stuff so I think I'm going to have one tub and than, store the "stuff" in a bag instead of having 12 boxes or more stored somewhere. The bags I can squish down into one box.
Have fun! And let me know if you try out a sensory bin - I'd love to see pictures. (And yes, I'm already picking up stuff for my February box - not sure yet what the "main" stuffer will be - to replace the cotton balls - I think a trip to Hobby Lobby is in order!!!!)
