Corn kernels, trucks, scoops and cow! Our first sensory bin!

The last few years have been filled with many sensory bins. Sometimes they have had a theme other times they have just been a collection of random items to keep little hands busy! Right now, at this moment, I wish I had captured those bins in more detail. I still have small reminders so I thought I would gather them together and share them with you as a Wordless Wednesday post today! There were so many more bins I never even took a picture of but I know it was because we were playing! If you haven’t read my first ever post ¬†about how I fell in love with sensory bins, here it is.

This is a large underbed storage bin with wood pellets. Totally all natural! We always have this in our family room and a variety of vehicles migrate in and out.

That’s a good round up of our past sensory bins but I will keep it ongoing as he gets older so I can watch him grow!
