I really like the sensory bins because it helps develop fine and gross motor skills and promote playing alone. It's an easy activity to set up and Sister Bear isn't relying on me to entertain her all the time. I usually end up playing with her anyways lol. Hey it's fun!

So to make our sensory bins I used a shoe box I had on hand, a verity of dried beans (or rice) an old sheet, and random kitchen items. I had everything already so it took me 5 mins to gather everything and set it up for Sister Bear. I didn't give her any directions and just sat back and let her figure it out.
You can make a sensory bin with ANYTHING! Here are a few ideas. For more ideas visit Pintrest.com!!!!
Soapy water with lots of bubbles
I could go go and on but here are some pictures of our fun!
