COLORED CRAFT SAND

Colored craft sand is easy to find in craft stores, and small bags of it are inexpensive as well as simple to store and reuse! I thought purple, yellow and green would be a pretty combination for spring. This sand sensory bin is also fun and easy to set up anytime of the year.

There are so many benefits to sensory bins. For us, the most important part is getting into it and really feeling the materials offered. The sense of touch is powerful, alerting or calming! That’s why sand is so good for sensory play.

  1. Fun Mardis Gras colors too! I love this and had no idea you could get bigger bags of the sand for a raesonable price. Thanks for setting up such a fun resource!!!

  2. I’ve not gotten adventurous enough to let my daughter play with sand yet. (Well, besides at the beach. ha ha) Looks like a lot of fun, though!

  3. I would like to play in this sensory box! I used to have a zen garden and I loved raking the sand.

    Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!
