Bird themed sensory bin

We used beans of this bin, I wanted to use bird seed but could not find any at the store I went too.
The book is not really about birds but is one of my favorite books to read to my kids.
As my kids played I ran off some facts to them about birds, and as the play went on my daughter was proudly telling her dad what she had learned.
We also had extended play with this as you can see from the picture on the right. After the play with the bird and eggs was over the beans then become a road for trucks and cars. We also went over the color of the beans, if they are hard or soft, how it feels to step on them and how you can cook and eat them.

I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
